New Migration Tables From The Census Bureau Show County-to-County Moves Across U.S.

Other County-Level Highlights

The largest yearly county-to-county flows originated from Los Angeles County. ( Table 1) The characteristics of those movers, however, are different depending on where they moved.  About half (48.9 percent) of those moving to Orange County were between the ages of 18 and 34, compared with 35.7 percent moving to San Bernardino County. San Bernardino had a higher percentage of movers under 18 than Orange County (30.2 percent vs. 19.2 percent). 

In terms of race, a similar percentage of whites moved to either San Bernardino County or Orange County from Los Angeles County, while a higher percentage of movers to San Bernardino County rather than Orange County were black (15.0 percent vs. 4.1 percent). Conversely, a higher percentage of movers to Orange County than San Bernardino County were Asian (26.1 percent vs. 9.2 percent).  Whites, blacks and Asians include Hispanics in their percentages.

Hispanics made up 58.1 percent of the population moving from Los Angeles County to San Bernardino County, and 30.8 percent moving to Orange County.

Besides the county-to-county flow tables, there are also tables that contain flows for minor civil divisions for Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Wisconsin.

About the American Community Survey

The American Community Survey provides a wide range of important statistics about people and housing for every community across the nation. The results are used by everyone from town and city planners to retailers and homebuilders. The survey is the only source of local estimates for most of the 40 topics it covers, such as education, occupation, language, ancestry and housing costs for even the smallest communities. Ever since Thomas Jefferson directed the first census in 1790, the census has collected detailed characteristics about our nation's people. Questions about jobs and the economy were added 20 years later under James Madison, who said such information would allow Congress to "adapt the public measures to the particular circumstances of the community," and over the decades allow America "an opportunity of marking the progress of the society."
