According a study by the firm Headlight Data using relocation data from the IRS, Tennessee had the tenth greatest number of households moving to the state from another state with 8248 in 2014. This data does not account for immigration which Tennessee is also among the top states.

The Nashville Business Journal article includes a cool flyover map that shows state-to-state migration.

The results of the analysis mirrored trends in other categories such as popular retirement destinations and small business satisfaction. Many Sun Belt and Mountain West states have a light tax burden and better-than-average jobs growth—not to mention mild winters—that entice residents of Midwestern and Northeastern states to pack up and move.

Here is the full report: http://headlightdata.com/states-attr...omers-in-2014/

After living in TN for a little bit, I would always wonder why more people don't live here. It really is a great value place to live with respect to jobs vs COL vs what the state has to offer. Not the best at anything, but does well in most and overall a great place to live.

I guess the word is starting to get out.

Too many people have views of TN set in the distant past and do not realize what a friendly and beautiful State it is to live in. Their loss.

That's OK. Keeps too many from moving here. Let them think what they want. As you say: their loss.
