Los Angeles Moving Trends

Los Angeles is the second biggest metro area in the country, and it just keeps getting bigger.

In fact, the City of Angels has grown faster over the last four years than it has between 2000 and 2010, with about twice as many people moving here annually than in the past.

Most new arrivals to the metro area, a total of 37 percent, come from somewhere else in California, and a whopping 26 percent are arriving from abroad. Outside of those two categories, most new arrivals are coming from the only place bigger than L.A.—New York City.
