American Migration


By clicking on a certain county in the United States, you can see from where people have moved into and out of the county, and you can even select the time period to look into. It is a great infographic for looking into the country over time.
Use various political and other topics to study the reason for the migration. Consider economics and job availability. Some areas were once very productive with a great deal of jobs available in industrial areas. Now, many factory jobs have been given to machines. The major areas with jobs available involve technology and research, and so many people have moved to areas that were already set up for it.
Other areas that may have influenced migration include the temperature and age. As the temperature has increased, some people may have moved to cooler and dryer areas. Also, Baby boomers have retired or are about to, and they may be moving to their dream homes on the beach.
