Default Transplants swamping Colorado? Perhaps not.

Each year, Atlas Van Lines calculates where they moved people to and from. While not the definitive data, here are the results for Colorado:


Year Inbound / Outbound 2011 2,403 2,082 2010 2,285 2,142 2009 2,271 1,908 2008 2,552 2,063 2007 2,697 2,049

Yeah, but these are just actaul numbers ( FACTS ), not the unbiased opinion & belief of an old curmudgeon who wants Colorado to revert to the way it was 50 years ago before a horde of out-of-state transplants ruined it. Do you expect us to take this nonsense seriously!

Yeah, a few statistics gathered by one moving company, with no supporting metadata of how the data was collected must surely be definitive! US Census data says otherwise. I have issues of how a lot of Census data has been collected (seen some sloppy work by the Census people firsthand), but it is more reliable and more complete data.

Such irony, YOU calling someone out over stats, none of which you ever post.

This is probably better data, since it's based off of tax information

See, that's what we mean about your attitude.

What's a key word in the title of the thread? PERHAPS not

And what did I say in the body of my post? not the definitive data

Of course, any data is not as good as you going around just chatting with people...because that's virtually the only "data" you ever post.

If I read it right the Census says 186,000 came to Colorado in 2010. 141,000 moved out. For a net gain of less than 1% population growth because of migration.
