Percentage of the Population Who Moved in the Last Year From a Different County in the Same State, 2009-to-2013 Average
Between 2009 and 2013, only 1.9 percent of Arizona residents had moved from a different Arizona county in the last year, compared to a national figure of 3.2 percent moving across county lines in the same state. The proportion was at least 5 percent in Coconino, Greenlee, and Pinal counties. In contrast, due to the large difference in the population size of Maricopa County versus the balance of the state, only 1.0 percent of Maricopa County residents had moved from another Arizona county. The figure was 1.9 percent in Pima County.
