State-by-State migration showed big numbers in recent years, as part of the general flow of internal relocation due to immigration (mainly from Latin America) and urbanization. However not all the metro areas in the United States grew constantly: most of the top-20 metro areas that saw an increase in population in the period 2010-2013 were in the South or western U.S., while some big cities in the North (e.g. Chicago and Detroit) recorded the largest loss. In some cases the international migration reverted a decreasing trend, like in New York City and Los Angeles.

This data visualization shows the U.S. Census Bureau estimates of both domestic and international migration, which includes immigrants and U.S. citizens relocating from abroad.
