Envisioning Migration Between States: Restless America

Chris Walker, of, spends a lot of time trying to help tell stories with visionary looks at "big data". In his article, Restless America, he shows us how migration patterns vary with an interactive graphic that allows you to "mouseover" a state to see the number of people moving between your selected state and other states.

Thicker arc lines mean more people moving. States are linked only if at least 10,000 people moved between them. If a state does not appear in the graphic, it is because it did not exchange at least 10,000 people with any other state in 2012.

To use the actual interactive graphic, visit the Restless America web post.
