What I am looking at has been taking place over the past 15 years+. If you are talking total history, then it is either New York or Los Angeles.

Are the results of this poll is a joke.

Phoneix, a city of 1.5 million with more transplants than the 8.2 million population of New York?

Los Angeles, a city of 3.8 million with more transplants than the 8.2 million population of New York?

Yea, OK. Statistically impossible.

Look at the domestic numbers:

Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, AZ Metropolitan Statistical Area (CBSA) Population and Components of Change

New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-PA Metropolitan Statistical Area (CBSA) Population and Components of Change

Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana, CA Metropolitan Statistical Area (CBSA) Population and Components of Change

The thread is about transplants from the states.

Also, I think people are looking more at percentage than raw numbers. Percentage is the more important factor of the two.

They are both equally important. Raw numbers in things like overall growth, etc.

Percentages say more about the make-up of a city.

Example: A city of 200,000 people with 160,000 transplants in the past 10 years has a more "transplant feel" than a city of 4 million with 200,000 transplants in the past 10 years. Even though the latter city has higher raw numbers.

What does this prove?

OP asked which city had the MOST transplants, not highest percentage. Phoenix has a high percentage because Phoenix is small which inflates the percentage. Raw numbers are more important.

New York has the largest amount of transplants, followed by LA and Houston.
