State of Residence by Place of Birth Flows - ACS and PRCS

Component ID: #ti1270526481

American Community Survey and Puerto Rico Community Survey Place of Birth Flows

The American Community Survey (ACS) and the Puerto Rico Community Survey (PRCS) ask respondents the state, U.S. Island Area, or foreign country where they were born. The tables available on this page shows the flows between state of current residence, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and the state or U.S. Island Area of birth. Other tables available on American FactFinder provide estimates for the native-born population born in the same state they reside, a different state, or outside the United States and the foreign born by selected characteristics (Tables B06001-B06012). Estimates of the foreign-born population by the country or region of birth are also available (B05006).

Component ID: #ti1205239174

The rows in each table contain estimates for the state of current residence and the columns contain estimates for the birth state, Puerto Rico, U.S. Island Area (i.e. American Samoa, Guam, Northern Marianas Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, or other U.S. Island Area), or elsewhere.

Currently, there are no state of residence-by-place of birth flows by characteristics available. Data users can create their own tabulations using public use microdata sample (PUMS) files.

Table Notes

Information about sample size and data quality measures (including coverage rates, allocation rates, and response rates) can be found on the American Community Survey website.

Data are based on a sample and are subject to sampling variability. The degree of uncertainty for an estimate arising from sampling variability is represented through the use of a margin of error. The value shown in these tables is the 90 percent margin of error. The margin of error can be interpreted roughly as providing a 90 percent probability that the interval defined by the estimate minus the margin of error and the estimate plus the margin of error (the lower and upper confidence bounds) contains the true value. In addition to sampling variability, the ACS estimates are subject to nonsampling error (for a discussion of nonsampling variability, see Accuracy of the Data). The effect of nonsampling error is not represented in these tables.

Decennial Census State of Residence by Place of Birth Flows

State or foreign country of birth was asked on each decennial censuses from 1850 to 2000.

State of residence by state of birth are available on the Internet for the 1980, 1990, and 2000 censuses. They are located on the Geographic Mobility/Migration website. Tables for previous censuses are available in various publications published by the U.S. Census Bureau.
