my question is : How much of one state are native from that state ? I mean their grand parents were in that state (not other state) in for example in 1900 ?

or if I ask my question more clear : for example in 2100 how many of for example Kentucky people's grand parents are now in Kentucky ? (did u got it ?!!?!!)
I know that it was about 11 million each both in and out-migration by US domestic migration between 1995-2000 .
and who are that moving people ?

and if you let me to take an example I say that if for example if in year 2000 Virginia was 100% pure Virginian and WV was 100% West Virginan and if New York was 100% NY ean and etc. (I don't mean exactly that Stats I mean neighbor states ) then in 2100 how much of non metro Areas of for example WV will be native West Virginian ? (if there will be no foreign immigrant )maybe 90% or less ? do domestic migration took a big effect on that ?

I know it is hard to answer my question but just tell my what u think . If u tell my your idea it doesn't matter to me if it is wrong .

Maps: Migration Flows in the United States - Pew Social & Demographic Trends

However it doesn't really tell you in terms of generational rootedness. Still the ones that are "high sticky, low magnet" might fit anyway, particularly if they've been states for quite awhile.

So Pennsylvania might be one possibility. It's one of the original 13 colonies and listed as "high sticky" (meaning percent of people born in state who stayed there) and low magnet. (Meaning the percentage moving in state is low) Ohio could also be a possibility going by that as it's been considered a state for over two centuries. Both Pennnsylvania and Ohio contain many Amish and although they've spread out many of them are fairly rooted.

My own guess would have been Louisiana. It fits the "high sticky, low magnet" deal so I could've mentioned it earlier. However also remember it has a high number of towns or cities on "people born in state" lists here. In some cases over 90% of certain Louisiana towns people were born in Louisiana. Of cities Lafayette, Louisiana looks fairly "rooted" or of in-state people.

However I was also thinking how it has many cultures that are considered to be somewhat unique or symbolic of the state and set-in to some degree. Like the Cajuns and Creoles.

Shouldn't the two City Data Links pages not be "The Most People" but "The Highest Percentage of People?" In other words CD labeled the lists wrong. The lists are in the order of percentages high to low not number of people high to low.

You have a point, but I don't know how you fix things on that end. Even if that end is what drew me to the site. (I'm not sure I knew it had a forum until much later and initially had no interest in joining the forum)

My grandparents weren't even alive in 1900. I am sure there are others on here like that too.
