From the local to the national level, residential mobility, internal migration,and immigration are critical in determining population growth and decline. In addition to its effect on geographic areas, migration also has a number of outcomes - such as economic opportunity or residential satisfsaction - for individuals. Every ten years, the census asks individuals where the lived five years previously. This report examines data from the same question asked in 1995 by the Current Population Survey (CPS), providing migration information for the first five years of the decade, a period not covered by the census. How populations change has implications for federal, state and local governments, as well as for private industry.
