Texas has had a net inmigration every year between 2005-2010; California tipped the other way. Interesting to see that the rate of mobility has changed so much since the late 1940s; it was around 21 percent for years and then started a decline to being currently around half that.

Thought this was interesting.

Imagine a majority of the NJ to PA is actually out migration of people in or commuting into the Western job centers of NJ in the NY metro accross 80 or 78

NY to NJ is an out migration from NYC to NJ mostly

Pennsylvania's demographics are normalizing. The 1970's and 1980's were particularly rough for the state, which left it with both a very high elderly and native-born population. (I've gone into the details why, but right now I'm not patient enough to do it again.) As recently as 1990, Pennsylvania had the highest native-born population percentage and the second-highest elderly percentage of all states. Now, the native-born percentage is down to fourth-highest, and though there's no official numbers yet, I saw projections a couple of years ago that had the elderly percentage projected down to sixth-highest by 2010.

Mark this down: among all states with populations of 8,000,000+ (there are 12 of them), Pennsylvania is going to have the most dramatic demographic shifts of them all by the 2020 Census. The process has already begun.

As a destination it looks like California has really lost a great deal of popularity in the rest of the US. At one time a high percent of their people were born in other states, but now it looks fairly low. The non-Californians they're getting being foreign immigrants.

New York and Illinois also look to be losing out on this. I kind of wish it had the in/out migration for all the states.

Not really. NY to Florida are basically retiring baby boomers, and NY to NJ is just people moving internally within NYC metro, so they never really left. NJ to PA are internal Philly and NYC metro movers.
