Visualization Notes:

Nationally, the percentage of residents who had migrated from another country in the prior year was steady between 2005 and 2013 at 0.6 percent of all movers. In Arizona, the share dropped from 0.9 percent to approximately equal to the U.S. average, as the employer sanctions law and the deep recession discouraged undocumented immigrants from moving to Arizona.
