Cool interactive infographic over at The Upshot with the NYT.

Interesting to see how the flow of people from different states/outside of the US changes over time. Here's what they have to say about California (my home state!):

The patterns of migration continue to change. California, shown above, has long been the destination of American dreamers from other states. It no longer plays that role; residents are leaving for greener pastures out East. Today, the state is still pulling in foreign immigrants, but the percentage of American-born transplants has shrunk significantly as more people leave the state. (Here's much more detail about California's exodus.) There are now about 6.8 million California natives living elsewhere, up from 2.7 million in 1980.

I'm part of the proud 28% of Californians who were born outside the US! Thank you Clinton for passing legislation that allowed me my citizenship.
