Arlington Ranks No. 3 for Residents Born Out of State

It is true: the vast majority of Arlington residents moved here from somewhere else.

Arlington County is third in a list of places where most people were born out of state, bested only by two major retirement destinations.

A Bloomberg columnist posted the list, from U.S. Census data, yesterday.

Only 18.8 percent of Arlington’s residents were born in Virginia, according to the data. Among cities and places with more than 65,000 residents, Arlington is only outranked by Kissimmee, Florida, with 17.8 percent born in state, and The Villages, Florida, with 3 percent born in state.

Alexandria and Silver Spring were also near the top of the list, each with 20.2 percent of residents born in-state.
