Recently released data from the Internal Revenue Service illuminates which US states have the highest state-to-state net household migration. Net household migration is total in-migrants minus out-migrants using the IRS-reported number of tax returns as a proxy for households.
Texas had the most household net relocations. The state gained 106,000 households in 2014, almost twice as many households gained by Florida in second place.
Florida (55,000 households), Colorado (19,000) and Washington (16,000) all gained more that 15,000 households.
The IRS data also shows the impact on state incomes due to state-to-state migration. Florida received the most income from out of state ($10.7 billion). Texas ($4.9 billion), South Carolina ($1.7 billion) and Nevada ($1.4 billion) followed.
