Description
  • Abstract

    These migration data come from the Census 2000 long-form questions about residence in 1995 and provide the number of people who moved between counties. There are two files, one for inflows from every county in the United States and another re-sorted by outflows to every county. Each file contains data for all 50 states and the District of Columbia, sorted by FIPS state and county codes.
