According to the article from the DP, roughly 1 in 10 people had changed county or state from the prior year back in 2014. Most of the moving took place within the state, 55% moved across county lines, while 45% were from out of state.

Highest ranking of former states to Colorado based on tax returns from prior year via IRS:

1. California
2. Texas
3. Florida
4. Illinois
5. Arizona

The top states for out migration from Colorado:

1. Texas
2. California
3. Florida
4. Arizona
5. Washington

Denver ranks #3 based on Mayflower's Millennial customers after Chicago and Dallas. Half of 18 to 35 year olds would move near a romantic partner or be by a loved one.

Colorado has more people on the move than any other state - The Denver Post

Gotta admit, nothing in that summary that surprises me, and IMO, has been happening for a much longer time than they are reporting on.

On my daily drive to work I can easily identify 6-10 out of state plates...and my commute is only a few miles long.

Yes, but remember you also live in a huge military town, and military are not required to register their vehicles in Colorado.

"Colorado has more people on the move than any other state"

Percent-wise, not in raw number. % is cited in article but headline might give different impression to some. In raw numbers of "people on the move" surely many of the bigger states would have more on move.

True, but after 50 years, I've got a pretty fair feel for military density vs relocation mobs.

LOL The article doesn't address those who moved to CO and ended up moving away. The article is only one part of the story, one side of the coin. So typical of US media these days; tell only one side of the story to promote a local viewpoint.

You can see the influence of the tech, oil & gas, and finance industries in those numbers: Chicago (finance, tech), Dallas (tech, oil & gas), LA/SF, (tech), Seattle (tech). Florida & Arizona are probably building industry and retirement.

A lot of people are moving from Colorado to Arizona, and other states, to get away from what Colorado has become.

Chicago is not a top tech center.

Dallas sounds about right.

LA tech? Sure I guess there is the emerging "Silicon Beach" of Santa Monica as well as Orange County has a lot of that, but other than that LAs economy revolves around other stuff. SF also has a lot of finance.

You're right about LA. It would have been more appropriate for me to write San Diego; most of the people in my circle who've come from southern CA have been from SD. They do work in tech.
