Migration in the U.S.
Typical U.S. migration patterns show that for any year, gross flows into and out of a given region are large relative to net flows. In 1999–2000, the South accounted for the largest numbers of both in- and out-migrants. The Northeast had far fewer in- than out-migrants. In the West and Midwest, the number of people entering roughly equaled those leaving, which produced a small net change.
