Summary The Census 2000 Supplementary Survey shows trends in migration by immigrants and domestic migrants (newcomers from other parts of the US). Regions not attracting either group have often experienced a prolonged economic decline or lack natural or cultural amenities that many migrants seek. California has the largest number of foreign-born residents, while Western and Southeastern states tend to attract many domestic migrants. States in the Midwest, Northeast and parts of the South have few migrants and tend to have older, less diverse populations.
