I have been reading about Colorado on city-data.com. It seems most transplant in Colorado tend to come from Upper Midwest and Upstate New York. Am not sure if this something new or historical (what I mean is if Colorado has always get is transplant from Upper Midwest and Upstate New York since it has become a state)



sorry for my English from Eastern Europe living in America.

Thatís not accurate. The largest contingent of inbound migration to Colorado is from California.

I think that might be true for the people on city-data living in Colorado, but in general, it seems quite different. This article's a few years old, but it was the most recent I could pull up:

https://denverite.com/2016/11/30/col...nt-population/


I had taken a college class on Colorado history a few years ago, and it seems where people come from originally has always been a bit of a mixed bag. For example, there were a number of Mexican families living in what is now part of Colorado who were here when it was part of Mexico, so they didn't really 'move', the borders changed on them. For awhile in the mid-1800's, a lot of people were coming in from Missouri.

Nowadays, per the link above, it seems most people moving to Colorado are from outside the United States.

Not necessarily. I've reviewed state data and statistics, and the top states for incoming relocation are CA, FL, AZ, TX, and NY. The outgoing relocation essentially involves the same states. I have the files saved on my computer, but can't remember now the state site where I found them.

Wrong. Transplants come from many states. Upper Midwest and upstate New York transplants are not among those I would say are most common. CA, TX, middle midwest seem to have sent more here than those.

Today is my one year anniversary as a Coloradan ... lived in Aurora, Oct - Apr then moved to Boulder.
Drove the 25 hours from Maryland, just me and ADogNamedSam, in one shot, stopping only for water, Gatorade, coffee and relief.


Anecdotally, at my apartment's dog park I have met three different clusters of folks just freshly arrived (less than two months) from Maryland as well. I know it runs counter to the statistics but I just thought it was funny and worth mentioning.

Technically, Native Americans who were born on the reservation were NOT born in America since Native land is considered sovereign. I will assume, however, that they are are considering them "born in Colorado". There is a HUGE Native population which really skews the statistics.

There are a tiny number of native Americans in Colorado.
