So, it's basically ranking cities from the least to the most out-of-state transplants--interesting. These stats will come in handy the next time we're discussing transplant-friendly cities.

Here's the whole list for people who don't want to scroll through the slide show:
1. Pittsburgh
2. Buffalo
3. Grand Rapids
4. Rochester
5. Detroit
6. Cleveland
7. Birmingham
8. New Orleans
9. Milwaukee
10. Columbus
11. St. Louis
12. Indianapolis
13. Cincinnati
14. Louisville
15. Minneapolis
16. San Antonio
17. Chicago
18. Philadelphia
19. Sacramento
20. Providence
21. Riverside
22. Richmond
23. Baltimore
24. Salt Lake City
25. Memphis
26. Hartford
27. Boston
28. Nashville
29. Austin
30. Dallas
31. Houston
32.New York City
33. Kansas City
34. Los Angles
35. Charlotte
36. San Francisco
37. Virginia Beach
38. Atlanta
39. Raleigh
40. Jacksonville
42. San Jose
43. Seattle
44. Denver
45. Portland
46. Tucson
47. Phoenix
48. Tampa
49. Orlando
50. Miami
51. Washington DC
52. Las Vegas

Methodologically, I wonder how they define "out of state" because many of these MSAs are in multiple states. Take St. Louis, for instance. Do all people born in Missouri and Illinois fall in the "in-state" category or just people from Missouri because that's the location of the anchor city?

I'd also be interested in talking more about cities were people are moving to vs. moving out of. I'm from Tucson, which is at the bottom of the list. And while lots of transplants are moving to Tucson, a lot of locals are moving out. All of my friends from high school have left town (most to the Bay Area, Seattle, and Austin). Whereas, I sense most of the Denver natives stay. I wonder what other cities are like Tucson in this regard?

I'm also wondering why Birmingham has not seen the same massive influx of transplants as other Southern cities.

Houston, DFW, Atlanta, Charlotte, San Antonio, Austin are all busily courting corporations

What a silly ranking! So if you never leave your city it's "stabile'?

Same deal with Memphis, OKC, and Louisville. The Southern cities that are really booming, in addition to the big four, are the ones in the 2 million MSA range. The cities in the 1 million range haven't quite seen the same kind of influx. I am sure a lot of it is economics. There have been a lot of corporate relocations to large and major Southern cities but not so much to the mid sized cities.

Do you have any predictions on what Southern cities will be next to boom?

Any predictions on Southern cities that will likely never boom?

It's actually pretty bad to be at the top of this list. Basically, what it means is people aren't moving to your city or metro because it doesn't have much jobs or desirability. Those at the top are usually the most provincial.

Or there isn't much movement either way and you are likely to have neighborhoods with long time residents.

That's mostly true but it doesn't explain Grand Rapids which has better growth rates than quite a few metros on that list.
