Seattle seemed to have the most transplants of any city I've been to. The natives were outnumbered by Midwestern and Californian transplants. But is there another city that has more out of town transplants than Seattle?

Yeah, I think Phoenix had more transplants than the total population of Seattle

Just a guess, but I'd say DC had the highest %. Denver seemed pretty transient when I lived there, I only had one good friend who was a native Denverite.

I was going to say "Denver". Most of the adults I know were born somewhere else, not even in-state.

NYC in numbers but no way in percent.

I'd say Phoenix, Seattle, DC maybe San Francisco.
