Forbes Interactive: Migration Within U.S.

Tue Dec 21, 2010 7:31 pm

Forbes.com has put together an interactive map showing the migration trends within the United States that have been occurring since 2008. I believe it is particularly telling of which regions in the U.S. have maintained job growth and economic resiliency during the recession. Living in the Houston area, I haven't had much reason to doubt that people are moving here for jobs. Judging by this map, people in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Seattle, Atlanta, and others can probably vouch for the same.

Black lines represent net inward movement
Red lines represent net outward movement

Here's a sampling of some major metro areas.....

Los Angles County



Wayne County (Detroit, MI)



Harris County (Houston, TX)



King County (Seattle, WA)

Gee, I guess all that oppressive taxation and progressive local politicians killing Bay Area business are having a dire effect on San Francisco:

Honolulu on the other hand...all kinds of reasons for this data of course with all the defense industry and military movement.

All of these reports are for 2008. I think the far more interesting reports will be for 2009 / 2010.

For instance, it shows Maricopa County, AZ (Phoenix) to be mostly gaining residents. While that might have been true up until the end of 2008, it's almost surely been going the other way for the last two years.

Cheers,

The issue is, these don't look at raw numbers, just differences between those that migrated.
