New data from Census shows that nearly 20% of all movers in the United States and Puerto Rico relocated to a different metropolitan in the last year. This is the FIRST time that Census Bureau has released data for migration flows between metro ares from the American Community Survey. Census claim that metro migration data can be useful for city planners and members of the local government, as well as local businesses to track residential turnover in their area so they can plan for new infrastructure projects and programs to accommodate new residents and employers. Over all, the largest migration was from Los Angeles metro area to the Riverside, California metro area which saw 90,494 movers. Texas makes the list 5 times!!! People are continuing to move here!
