​​​​​​​​TEXAS - The Lone Star State has become the top destination for migrants of the domestic variety, people moving to Texas from other states, rather than from other countries, have played a key role in the state’s population growth, according to a new analysis by the Office of the State Demographer.​

From 2005 to 2013, an estimated 5.9 million people moved to Texas, and 4.8 million of those came from one of the other 49 states.

Domestic net migration—the difference between the number of migrants leaving Texas for other states and the number of migrants coming to Texas—totaled 154,467 between 2013 and 2014. 

During that same time period, international migration topped off at 84,637.

California sent more people by far to Texas than any other state.

Though domestic migrants resettled across the state, almost half headed to Texas’ biggest metropolitan areas.

Between 2009 and 2013, Harris County took in the most domestic migrants, according to the report.
