The population of domestic migrants continue to move principally to the South.  The South has gained 5.6 million domestic migrants, followed by 0.8 million in the West. The Northeast has lost 3.7 million domestic migrants, while the Midwest has lost 2.7 million.

Florida leads the way by capturing 21.5% of all net domestic migration from 2000-2015 which translates to 1,793,000 people. In 2015 alone, Florida had more than 200,000 people domestically migrate.

This bodes well for a variety of industry including housing, retail and services and should be the fuel to provide a well sustained local economy for years to come.
