About 141,000 people moved to Texas from other states last year, giving the Lone Star State the highest domestic migration figures of all fifty states.

North Carolina, Georgia and Arizona rounded out the top four, according to U.S. Census Bureau figures reported by the Western Blue Chip Economic Forecast.

The Western Blue Chip Economic Forecast is published by the JPMorgan Chase Economic Outlook Center, an affiliate of the L. William Seidman Research Institute, College of Business, Arizona State University.
