More than 10 million Americans moved from one county to another during 2008. The map below visualizes those moves. Click on any county to see comings and goings: black lines indicate net inward movement, red lines net outward movement. Source: Internal Revenue Service data.

If you want to see fireworks,, click on Los Angeles County, Calif.
Appears to be mass exodus with the exception of the failed socialist states in the N.E. where people are moving from one failed socialist utopia to another.
I’d say people are leaving OH in droves, and those who come are far poorer than those who leave.
As expected, people are leaving Allegheny County (Pittsburgh) in droves.
One astounding fact from my county in CT, (Middlesex) 23 people with an average income of $551,000 moved to Cook County, IL. They have to be idiots. Taxes alone will keep me from ever moving back to Chicago/Cook County.
Click on the Chicago macro and see an explosion of red. In 2008, a significant part of this was ACORN. Great tool, though.
Cryingalmighty, I have never seen so many out of staters flooding into Alaska just in the last month!
They are everywhere, broke, looking for work and in a few cases are becoming downright dangerous.
Case in point, a California immigrant is hired to operate a concrete boom pump, he tries to adhere to the eco-friendly standards he was taught for California, the result was nearly tragic as his ineptness almost caused the death of a friend of mine. Basically he was so fearful of spilling concrete he allowed excess pressure to build up in the concrete hose, when it did go the contractor who was holding it was tossed 20’ like a rag doll.
I do the hiring at my concrete batch plant, sadly I must stand firm on hiring and I must hire local first even if the immigrant has more experience.
My current county is sad. We have a net inbound migration but it is all low GDP. Our outbound population while low has high GDP. We are a majority hispanic county.
That’s an interesting map; thanks for putting it up.
Bump for later
I have seen only one Hispanic in the last 5 years, and he is just a fraction of that even.
Here in Wasilla Alaska its 98% white, and the rest is of a mix of native tribes.
It appears to be that we are indeed getting political refugees here, unfortunately we do not have the proper infrastructure for the flood of them, there are next to none in manufacturing jobs, no big warehouse plants for worker drones.
No massive apartment complexes, we have quite a few but the rent is outrageous.
Gas is the most expensive of all states, the food cost more, the overall cost of living is 2 or more times more expensive than the lower 48. And higher wage jobs much coveted and cherished by elitist liberals are only in Anchorage.
So if anyone is planning to flee to Alaska, go to Anchorage.
Click on Detroit. lol!
Lol... keep them outside... More Alaska for the ones already there...
This will cause liberals to want to level the playing field by having the IRS collect all taxes and the Feds distribute it “fairly”.
There is plenty of Alaska for plenty of people.
The problem is that the people believing Alaska is the holy land have to be very self supporting, only the strong survive, weaklings falter and fail.
I see it every year, big city folk come up here and are totally lost, they cannot even survive in big city Anchorage after 6 months of real winter.
Don't bother going to your area/town! No jobs and everything is down right expensive.
No need. I live about 40 miles north of it. The red lines look like a rocket, huh? I read an article that now, even middle class blacks are leaving that area. Democratic Utopia at it's best.
