Visualization Notes:

The number of out-migrants from Arizona to elsewhere in the United States has displayed an upward trend since the early 1980s, but the out-migration rate—the number of out-migrants per 1,000 state residents—has dropped over this period. Out-migration is countercyclical, falling during economic expansions and rising during recessions. After decreasing during the mid-2000s, the number of out-migrants rose in each year from 2006 through 2009, with the highest figures on record in 2008 and 2009.
