The Census Bureau has released some tables on interstate migration.

Washington: Idaho, Montana, Oregon.
Texas: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee.

If representatives were apportioned based on State of birth, this would be the 2014 apportionment.

Only those born in the 50 States plus the District of Columbia are included. 436 representatives were apportioned. Not only would the DC-born have two representatives, DC would be the most populous area among those with 2 representatives.

The California-born have 45 representatives, but only a population entitled to 34 lives in California. The remainder would be distributed among 11 districts.

Top destinations are:

8 to 10%


3 to 5%


2 to 2.5%

New York
North Carolina

This is an alternate configuration. Nevada is with Hawaii, and Oregon is with Alaska. Nevada has close to enough for a district, but not too close (0.856). It's smallest neighbor, Idaho (0.262) when added to Oregon is substantially over (1.118), but 1.118 is closer to 1.000 than 0.856, and so Nevada-Idaho was the basis for the first map. But Oregon is not really that close to Hawaii, so it might be reasonable to use air connectivity, even though you have to fly over California to get from Nevada to Hawaii. You get better compactness, and the other districts are somewhat more compact.

New York

Of the 32 representatives for the New York-born, 12 districts would be outside New York, heavily concentrated on the east coast.

Florida is entitled to 2.323 districts, so there would be 2 districts in the southern part of the state, and a 3rd shared with Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi. New Jersey is entitled to 1.403 districts, so it would have one district in the southern and central part of the state, and another shared with Connecticut and Rhode Island. The 4 northern New England states are in a district with Illinois, Michigan, and Indiana.

Top Destinations:

Florida 19.8% (of New York natives living in other states)
New Jersey 11.7%
California 7.8%
Pennsylvania 6.6%
North Carolina 5.7%
Virginia 4.4%
Connecticut 4.4%
Georgia 3.9%
Texas 3.8%
Massachusetts 3.5%
Maryland 2.8%
South Carolina 2.5%
Arizona 2.4%
