Net migration is probably the most important stat here. This shows the bottom line.

Are these 2010 figures?

Things have indeed changed in just two years.

That having been said, net migration, other than the big three of Texas, California, and Florida, show three western states poised to be players in this stat: Washington, Arizona, and Colorado.

I can handle everything fine with the exception of the wind and the lack of trees. Those are the key reasons I stay east of the Mississippi River

Trees? You are asking about trees? I see millions of trees in the west, including North Dakota. Perhaps you need to visit.

This is a 10 yr increase, I presume? If it's a 1 yr increase I'd better jump away from the road to avoid the thundering hordes.

Since I've played with some of these same numbers, I can tell you these are the estimates from 2011-2012.




creek...the 10 year increase for some of these states is in the millions. Tennessee's increase from 2000-2010 was about 657,000.

I'll take wind over humidity any day. There are plenty of trees where I live.

Data is normally shown from
(1) April 1 2000 to April 1 2010
(2) April 1 2010 - July 1 2011
(3) July 1 2010 - July 1 2011.

Census is required to do official census every 10 years on April 1
The Census does interim measurements on July 1, and they report them just before Christmas.

The Data Sheets for the estimates since 2010 census are at that location. You should specify if you are talking about 15 months, 12 months, or 27 months.

Of the four giant states that constitute a third of the country's population
Texas is the clear leader of population change. It has (1) large number of births, (2) low numbers of deaths, (3) domestic immigration, and (4) international immigration. Very few states have all four.

California and New York have international immigration, but domestically people are leaving. Florida has people moving there, but a high death rate due to the age of the population

For 1 July 2011 to 1 July 2012 Texas (out of USA) has
Births 385,203 out of 3,953,593
Deaths 170,165 out of 2,513,173
Natural Increase 215,038 out of 1,440,420 (Births - Deaths)
International Migration 69,702 out of 885,804
Domestic Migration +140,888 out of ZERO NET MIGRATION FOR USA

Florida net domestic migration +101,411
New York net domestic migration -115,754
California net domestic migration -44,541

Utah, with it's large Mormon population, has far and away the highest natural rate of increase in the country. It is actually higher than many of the Latin American countries. But population is still several years away from 3 million so we are not talking about very large numbers of people. For the last 12 months estimate Utah had 51,071 births and only 14,826 deaths.

Alaska has the next largest natural growth rate (given it's young population) but still only 730K total. Texas's rate of natural growth is ranked #3 in the country.

It's not that I can't handle cold weather, I just find ND to be a very boring place which I would never live. And since my occupation doesn't involve oil or gas, I probably won't land up there any time soon anyway.

I never said they didn't have trees, just not even remotely enough to cut down on the horrible nature of the wind out in the open country.

What do you consider "plenty of trees"? I only consider a place to have "plenty of trees" to be a large selection growing on their own without being planted.

Humidity is a good thing. It means people can grow crops and trees do well. Also, less prone to extreme drought and wildfires like the western US.
