Percentage of the Population Who Moved in the Last Year From a Different State

Visualization Notes:

In 2005, the percentage of Arizona residents who had migrated to the state in the past year from another state was twice the national average, but the percentage of interstate movers to Arizona fell more than the national average from 2006 to 2009. The percentages have been stable since then. Lower percentages of people make long-distance moves during economic recessions, largely due to the difficulty in finding a new job; job growth has not been strong enough in recent years to allow the percentage to rise much.
