5. Idaho
6. Texas
7. Oregon
8. Arizona
9. Montana
10. Washington
11. Florida
12. South Dakota
13. North Carolina
14. Tennessee
15. Delaware

States whites have been moving from...
1. New Mexico
2. Connecticut
3. New Jersey
4. Rhode Island
5. Illinois
6. New York
7. Pennsylvania
8. West Virginia
9. Maryland
10. Vermont
11. Ohio
12. California
13. Mississippi
14. Massachusetts
15. Michigan

What do you think?

Aren't many of the states you listed in the "moving to" states retirement states? I don't know but if I had to guess, given that baby boomers are reaching retirement age, they would move to states like Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, etc. Just sayin'.

Of the "moving to states" Texas is just 45% White/Non-Hispanic, Arizona is at 54% and Florida is 55% all of which are dwindling. That doesn't add up as a reason it would seem...

Population growth does not equate to an influx of brain power as evidenced by many Sunbelt cities losing in that department as well. Where I live in the Orlando area is an example of that where only 19% of residents overall have a Bachelor's Degree.

I dunno if Tennessee and South Dakota are growing that much, but I'd definitely stick Nevada near the top of the growth list.

And is it even a thing? I've never heard of such.

This and I wouldn’t be surprised if the topic changed to “The Top States Retirees Are Moving To”, that the lists are pretty much similar.

This article, as far as 'white flight' is concerned, seems more focused on intrastate migration, not interstate.
