Midatlantic UFC - Pennsylvania-New Jersey migration flows

Just some more gratuitous wonking with the most recent IRS migration data.  Playing off some media and online buzz (granted some of that is a bit of an echo chamber) coming from the apparent net migration from New Jersey to Pennsylvania, below are two maps showing what the spatial patterns are for the population migration between the two states. 

The top map shows the county to county flows that have a net migration FROM a Pennsylvania county TO a New Jersey county.The bottom map shows the same for flows FROM New Jersey TO Pennsylvania.  So these maps isolate the inter-state migration flows between just the two states and are separated into two maps for the flows that are net into NJ or net into PA respectively. Note the flows are weighted in the width of the line symbols to the size of the net migration flow and the two maps are scaled the same for comparison.  So at least for the moment Killer Keystone is stomping on Golden Garden.

People with NJ plates park very poorly, so I'm not that concerned. Sorry I missed the TV appearance. I really did mean to wake up, but it's not easy on Sunday.

Would be interesting to see the same mapping for the NYC MSA. And to see how the long term has been and how it changed over the last twenty years.

Not asking for you to do that as it would take a lot of time...just saying it would be interesting.

KDPG used to have video clips online, but I can't find them any longer. Alas.

Such a great article which The bottom map shows the same for flows FROM New Jersey TO Pennsylvania.In which these maps isolate the inter-state migration flows between just the two states and are separated into two maps for the flows that are net into NJ or net into PA respectively.
