Where Were Most Michiganders Born? Interactive Map Breaks It Down
If you guessed that most people that live in Michigan were born in Michigan... well... you were right. 77% of residents in 2012 were born here, according to a new interactive map released by The New York Times.
The map provides data on all 50 states from the years 2012, 1950 and 1900.
What is most fascinating to me is to compare how many Michiganders in 1900 were born outside the U.S. versus in 2012. In 1900 23% were not born in America.
Do you think the percentage was higher or lower in 2012?
