Chart of the Day: Internal Migration

Via Andrew Sullivan, here’s a Forbes interactive map showing both the inward and outward migration from my home county:

What’s interesting is that the outward migration is all over the map, but the inward migration is almost exclusively from the East Coast and bits of the upper Midwest. I’m not sure why. In any case, click the link if you want to see the migration pattern for whatever county you live in.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
