It's time for Howard's Illustrated Economics.
Today Howard discussed states with large populations that come from out of state.
It's pretty interesting how people move around. In many cases the largest group is represented by the people who were born in that state, however, there are some interesting exceptions.
Fewer than half of the people in Idaho were actually born there. This is also similar to the case in Oregon and Washington State.
In California, where 55% of residents are native born, 28%of Californians come from outside the U.S. because of immigration, and 14% of the people that live in Oregon come from California. In Nevada-- only 19% of people who live there come from California.
In Alaska-- only 42% of people who live there actually come from Alaska.
Each state has its own interesting mix, but we do live in a highly mobile country.
