Denver is among the most popular destinations in the nation for people moving from one state to another, according to a report Thursday from the U.S. Census Bureau.
Denver saw a net in-migration of 2,737 people between 2007 and 2011, the report said.
A total of 21,895 people moved from out of state into Denver between 2007 to 2011, with most coming from the state of California. During that same period, 19,158 people moved out of Denver to another state, for a net gain of 2,737.
Within the state, a little over 43,000 people moved out of Denver to surrounding counties, while just under 40,000 moved into Denver.
According to the report, about 16.8 million people moved into a different county nationwide during the 2007-2011 time period. The most common county-to-county moves occurred in California.
About 6 percent of the population age 1 and older move in a year across county lines of from abroad.
The county-to-county report uses data collected by the American Community Survey between 2007 and 2011.
