Moving from California to Arizona

Rental Truck demand reports higher truck prices going to Arizona when compared to going to California because demand for trucks is much higher leaving California...They need more trucks in California for residents leaving

As recorded by those that report, Californians citizens are leaving for both Texas and Arizona more so than any other states since AZBIGMEDIA covered this in an article dated December 22, 2019.

Although tax paying California citizens are leaving similar to an exodus to the 'Promised Land', with the growth of the homeless and undocumented immigrants and with the attraction of sancutary cities California's population may also be increasing but this is difficult to measure falling "under the radar" and not fully reported by the US Census.

Metro-to-Metro Migration: Which US Metro Areas Are Winning?

"More than 45 million Americans changed residences between 2017 and 2018, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates. This means that more than 14% of the total U.S. population moved in the course of a single year. Migration has been a defining characteristic of Americans since the frontier expansion; nowadays, Americans move more often than most other people in the world.

Many of the shifts in population within U.S. borders can be attributed to residents moving from one Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) to another. To see which metros are the most popular destinations, we analyzed net population gains through metro-to-metro migration for U.S. cities and their respective MSAs. We used U.S. Census estimates for 2013-2017, the latest data released as of August 2019.
