They show where the nation has been growing since the April Census headcount, a period that follows the end of the recession and includes three-fourths of the Obama presidency.
They show what states Americans have been moving in and out of, and what states have attracted the most immigrants. They're worth looking at, because the cold precision of the numbers provides clues to the warm impulses of human hearts, where people choose to pursue dreams or escape nightmares.
During this five-year period the nation's population increased from Growth was highly uneven. Polarization and cultuarl divison biggest percentage growth rates were in fracking-rich North Dakota 13 percentthe gentrifying District of Columbia 12 percent and the much bigger states of Texas 9 percentColorado, Utah and Florida 8 percent.
The big percentage gainers of the decade, Nevada and Arizona, gained at lesser rates this decade, as did Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia.
Altogether 45 percent of the nation's population growth occurred in the three Sun Belt states: Texas, California and Florida.
But it was from quite different sources. In Texas and Florida, there was more net migration from other states -- domestic inflow -- than immigration.
Political analysts in the last decade predicted that heavy immigration would make these states more Democratic.
But in this decade it looks like any such movement will depend more on domestic migrants, who seem Democratic-leaning in some states Washington and North Carolina but not others Texas, Florida, South Carolina and Arizona. In any case, as the Pew Research Center has documented, there has been no net immigration from Mexico since ; incomers have been matched by those who "self-deport.
Immigration in this decade has exceeded the national rate in only 12 states and D. In these states and in California and Washington, immigrants seem to be increasingly Asians, many with high skill levels, rather than Latinos, almost all relatively low-skill.
Those of us who have urged revising immigration law to favor high-skill newcomers are apparently seeing something like that result produced by market forces under current law.
The high-immigration states plus Illinois have had the nation's highest rates of domestic outflow, reflecting high tax rates, heavy regulation and high housing prices. In effect, they're trading Americans for immigrants, the political result of which is a tendency to make these states even more heavily Democratic.
This is apparent when you group states by political tendency. The 23 Republican states have grown 5. You can probably guess which of the others are Republican and Democratic.
Republican states gained 2.
Target states gained 2. In contrast, the Democratic states lost 1. Overall, population increase and mobility are both down from the previous decade; people tend to hunker down in straitened economic times. Annual immigration numbers remained about the same in asbut for those earlier years they probably understate the flow of illegal immigrants, which seems to have been much larger then than recently.Michael Barone: Population, Cultural Division and Political Polarization on the Rise cultural values and political views to choose to live in different states and communities, all of which.
