Where are people moving to in 2016?

Florida is the top destination in the U.S. according to data compiled by Yuqing Pan at  Florida had 3 of the top 7 cities with regards to residents gained.  Topping the list was Tampa, Florida.

Using data from the Census Bureau, and, Pan found people moving from New York, Chicago and Detroit to cities in Florida such as Tampa, Jacksonville and Orlando.  People are leaving behind the cold winters, high taxes and over-priced cost of living in the North to enjoy Florida living.

On the west coast, people are leaving cities in California such as San Jose, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

More reasons for the move?  Unlike California and New York, there is no state income tax in Florida.  Homes here are also more affordable than in California and NYC.  Strong job markets are also important as unemployment is only around 4% in the growing Florida cities.
