Connecticut welcomed 77,000 new residents between 2015 and 2016, but said goodbye to about 103,000, according to new domestic migration figures released by the U.S. Census.
The map above indicates which states gained or lost residents to Connecticut, which shows that more are moving to the South and West. This does not take into account other sources of population growth such as births and immigration from outside the U.S.
Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania gained the most Connecticut residents— 15,000, 5,000, and 3,600 respectively.
On the other hand, Connecticut gained more residents than it lost from states such as Washington, New Jersey, Massachusetts and New York.
New York, in particular, sent 24,000 residents to Connecticut.
The map above also doesn’t include Washington, D.C. There are about 380 new residents of Connecticut from there, but it gained 1,300 back.
Overall, though, people are moving less across the country, according to the U.S. Census. The percent moving within the year fell to an all-time low of 11.2 percent in 2016.
According to the survey, 42 percent of movers said they did so for housing-related reasons, such as wanting a new home or apartment. About 27 percent said they moved for family reasons, and 20 percent said they moved for jobs.
The Southern region saw the greatest number of people moving out (900,000), but also saw the largest inflow (940,000)
Also notable was that about 70,000 New York residents moved to Florida and 65,000 residents moved from California to Texas.
Washington, D.C., had the highest percentage of new residents between 2015 and 2016 at about 9 percent.
New York ranked last among states in percentage of new residents at about 1.32 percent.
Looking at the percentage of those residents in 2015 and 2016 who were still living in the same homes as a year prior, Connecticut ranked sixth, with 87.5 percent.
