Moving In, Moving Out: Census Migration Figures Released
Newly released migration trend reports from the Census Bureau provide details on movement into, within and out of the Hoosier state. In the analysis of state-to-state flows of population between 1995 and 2000, 451,397 people moved into Indiana, with a slightly smaller number, 429,772, moving out.
This earned Indiana a spot with those states that experienced net in-migration during that time period, such as Wisconsin, Minnesota and Kentucky. Illinois, Michigan and most eastern states lost population during that five-year period. Notably, 84,760 people from Illinois moved to Indiana between 1995 and 2000.
