Migration Data Shows Northeasterners Continue to Invade Miami While Miamians Move North to the South
Forbes.com has a fascinating interactive map up that uses IRS data from 2008 to show the migration of Americans on a county-to-county basis. Above is that data for Miami-Dade. Red lines represent migration patterns where more Miamians moved to a county than people from that county moved to Miami. Black lines represent population switches where Miami gained more residents than it lost. Yes, that's a whole lot of red.
693 Miamians moves to Fulton County, Ga where Atlanta is located. In return only 325 ATLiens landed in Miami. Similar patterns are seen in surrounding Georgia counties, parts of North Carolina, and parts of Texas.
