Abstract

The likelihood that people move varies by race and Hispanic origin. Given these differences, do the locations to and from which they move also differ? In other words, do geographic patterns of migration differ by race and Hispanic origin? The redistribution of people by race and Hispanic origin is largely a function of domestic and international migration, which strongly influence the population growth and decline of particular racial and ethnic groups in particular locations. 

This report first examines and compares general mobility patterns by race and Hispanic origin — how many people moved and what types of moves they made, based on the Census 2000 question on residence in 1995. The second part of the report discusses the redistribution of people by race and Hispanic origin between 1995 and 2000 by examining net migration at the regional, division, and state levels and by considering movers from abroad. This provides an overview of geographic areas that experienced the largest net migration gain (or loss) of people of various race or Hispanic-origin groups, as well as the geographic origins and destinations of individual populations. Maps of county-level net migration rates complement the regional-, divisional-, and statelevel analyses with a finer degree of geographic detail. This report helps answer questions about what areas are gaining or losing people of various races or Hispanic origin, such as where the growth of Hispanics is occurring and the nature of Black migration to the South.
