Where Did Your Neighbors Go? Click and Find Out!

Our readers know we love to beat up on Forbes magazine for their frequent lists of dead/ dying/ shrinking/ etc. cities.

But let me give credit where credit is due…this is a really interesting and cool interactive graphic that uses IRS data to show migration within the US, sorted by county. Good job on this one, Forbes!

Click on a county to see inward and outward migration and where residents moved to/ or from. I could spend a long time playing with this.

Thanks to a frequent Rust Wire reader, my Dad, for pointing this out to me.

    Wow. This is pretty amazing. One flaw though, is that it is very hard to see the migration patterns within a multi-county metro area because it the migration lines overlap where you should be able to see that, no matter how much you zoom in. That’d be some of the most interesting stuff.
