I would love to see a breakdown of where blacks are migrating from. Louisiana is taking over Houston as far as blacks. LOL

Houston has always been the main spot for Louisianans wanting to relocate out of state. I think Houston is more popular for Southerners than Dallas is but not as much as Atlanta. Houston and Dallas is probably about equal for Western Blacks and both are more popular than Atlanta. Atlanta easily more popular for Northeastern Blacks and I already pointed out the Midwest.

^^ that last map is about 10 years old now. I've posted it dozens of times on here and SSC. The first three maps do not surprise me one bit. It definitely shows that while Houston is more popular with Blacks from the West Coast, the pool isn't as high as what Atlanta pulls from. And it also shows that Atlanta is more popular for Chicagoans compared to Houston.

Yeah the last map just pretty much shows the general "reverse migration" trend that has been in effect since the 70's/80's.

The first three map are useful but also include the period of the height of the recession, so it includes some statistical noise in that respect.

Thanks for the info.


I know the first maps are from 2010, but were those yearly gains?

Atlanta was overwhelmingly NYC and Chicago. Houston was more proportioned.

It also does not hurt that in addition to Atlanta being a more popular name for Blacks in the Midwestern cities, the cities are closer to Atlanta as well than it is to Houston or Dallas.

The figures are from the ACS, 2005-2010.

True. If it wasn't for its proximity to Louisiana, Houston would be low.
