Americans on the Move

Interested to see where Americans are moving from and to? Jon Bruner at Forbes.com puts together an interactive map infographic that shows the migration both into and out of a selected county. If you are moving to another city or interested in moving, find out how many other people have made the move.

More than 10 million Americans moved from one county to another during 2008. The map below visualizes those moves. Click on any county to see comings and goings: black lines indicate net inward movement, red lines net outward movement.
