This may be a stupid question, but I'm unsure what the graph means. Is the graph indicating that from 7/1/11 to 7/1/12, PA had 25,058 foreign-born residents move into the state (net), and in the same time period the Commonwealth saw 18,767 domestic-born residents leave the state (net)?

Based on previous data, can we assume that domestic migration is proportionally skewed to rural areas and that international migration tends to be city based? I.E., the cities are becoming larger and the rural areas are decreasing?

Keep in mind some of the effect is international migrants starting off in gateway cities (like Philly), and then later they (and/or their children) become domestic migrants as they subsequently disperse further into the United States. So the big gateway cities are constantly seeing both net positive international migration and net negative domestic migration .

The graph is a bit generalized to really know if there is a connection between the migrants or if they are separated. I mean, it's not like they all saw a double decker bus for sale and left the city, but I'd like to see the methods in how they got the information.
