Interactive map details migration patterns of each state

More than 70 percent of residents living in Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa and Ohio in 2012 were born in that state, while only 25 percent of Nevada residents were born in the state, according to a treemap created by The New York Times. The map shows the percentage of residents born in each state, the percentage born in other states and the percentage born outside the U.S.

A large percentage of Nevada's population comes from California, with 19 percent of Nevada residents born in The Golden State. Only 36 percent of Florida residents were born in the Sunshine State, with 8 percent born in New York. California has the highest percent of residents born outside the U.S., at 28 percent, followed by New York (25 percent), Florida (23 percent), Nevada (21 percent) and Texas (17 percent).
