February 13, 2017

Washington D.C., Massachusetts, and New York were popular states for immigrants last year. All three had an international migration rate of 6 per 1,000 residents or better.

Business Insider reports that, according to data from the US Census Bureau, all 50 states and the District of Columbia had net positive population growth from international migration.

Of course, the size of that increase varied wildly across states, from a gain of just 524 net immigrants in Wyoming to nearly 229,000 in California. Adjusting for population, rates of net international migration ranged from 0.55 per 1,000 Montana residents in 2015 to 6.14 per 1,000 Washington, DC residents.
