The Lone Star State

Texas Flag and US FlagThe California population moving to Texas is likely drawn there by the growing tech industries and lower housing costs. Relocating most often appeals to young employees, as the study found millennials were the highest percentage of people crossing state borders.

Many people who left New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan were headed to Florida. However, Washington, D.C., North Dakota, and Wyoming saw the highest influx of residents moving in from other states, according to the analysis. Alaska saw the most residents moving away.
