2012 US Migration

Restless America: state-to-state migration in 2012 | vizynary.

Approximately 7.1 million Americans moved to another state in 2012. That’s over 2.2% of the U.S. population.

Where did they come from?  Where did they go?  Take a look!

What about Texas?  We hear there are 500 people a week moving to Austin.  Does this match the data from the census bureau?

500 a Week to Austin is 26,000.  That leaves another 80,000 people who moved someplace else in Texas – Houston, El Paso, Lubbock?  Where are they?  What kind of jobs will they find?  What skills will they need?  How will we pay to educate their children, pave their roads, provide their water?
