Migration and Geographic Mobility in Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan America: 1995 to 2000

This special 8-page report from the US Census takes a look at migration and geographic mobility across the metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas of the United States. Released in August 2003, and authored by Jason P. Schachter, Rachel S. Franklin, and Marc J. Perry, the report examines 5-year mobility data from Census 2000, and specifically those persons over the age of 5. For those unfamiliar with some of the basic terms and definitions utilized throughout the body of the report, there is a short section at the beginning of the report that offers some brief explications of terms like residential mobility, net migration, and net outmigration. The report offers some interesting observations, such as the fact that residents of central cities within metropolitan areas were more mobile during this time period than those residing in nonmetropolitan territory. The report is made visually appealing and informative by the inclusion of several maps and charts that offer statistical evidence of these broad patterns of residential mobility across America.
