You can’t swing a dead cat in Colorado without hitting a Californian

Despite its economic struggles, the number of people moving to Colorado from other parts of the US continues to exceed the number of people leaving. According to data from the IRS, Colorado received about 12,400 more people than it sent elsewhere in 2009-2010. The top-10 sending states are shown in the chart below, and capture about 67 percent of the total net in-migration. (Colorado showed a net out-migration with 12 states–with the largest deficit Oklahoma (-139)).

California remains the largest sender…not surprising given that it is the most populous state and was hard hit by the Great Recession. The upper midwest region sends the most; the southeast has 2 states in the top-10.
