Where Rhode Islanders Are Going
Forbes has an interactive map where you can look at where the people are moving. I found it via Ryan Streeter’s post concerning the difference in migration between California in Texas (Texas is gaining, Cali ain’t). Consider Rhode Island more a Cali than a Tay-has. Here’s Providence County, for instance:
Kent, Washington (er…”South”) and Newport counties are also in the red, so to speak. Unsurprisingly, it looks like a lot of retiring Rhode Islanders are heading to Florida, Arizona and maybe SoCal. Another group, probably more based on economic reasons, is headed to Georgia–particularly Atlanta–and the Carolinas.
