I am extremely interested in demographics and why people move around the United States. With that in mind, I decided to make this tool so people could easily see who is moving to each state and how those people are different than the original residents. You can view this information for any state and explore many topics such as employment status, citizenship, and educational attainment.
What I was able to find looking at this tool is that most interstate/international movers are more likely to be:
- Young Adults
- Attending School
- Have Higher Levels of Educational Attainment
I hope you enjoy the visualization below. If you see anything you want to let us know, feel free to comment or reach out to us on Twitter.

I used the 2017 ACS One Year Public Use Microdata Sample to create this visualization. The data can be found on the ACS Website. I then utilized Tableau to visualize the data.
