Default A social experiment, How many NOVAinians are natives?

Just wondering what percent of people that blog here are actual Northern Virginia natives. Meaning, you consider NOVA is where you grew up.

Not a native, but I do love it here! I grew up in the Boston area, but now I'm in Arlington, VA. From what I've heard, this town has changed a lot, even in the past 5 years!

I recently read an article about this, and I want to say that it said 80% of current NoVA residents did not grow up in NoVA.

My family goes way back in both Fairfax and Arlington. Born in Arlington Hospital in 1962. And if I am correct, I remember you on another thread talking about the Washington Star. I thought my Dad would croak when the Star ended.
