The numbers show that Arizona continues to be popular with people from elsewhere, taking in 2.2 million new residents from other states since 2010 to 2018. Job growth, Arizona’s steady economy and lifestyle are the major reasons that people say they are attracted to our state. The highest traffic was between neighboring California, with Texas in second place (137,320 people). Illinois sent 102,897, which is which makes sense considering the number of Chicagoans here. A surprise to me was the 127,772 people Washington sent south to our state since 2010. All these numbers put Arizona in the top five of states with the most inbound moves.
