NYT articleThe New York Times recently published a web page that allows users to track where people in a particular US state were born, and where people born in that state moved throughout the years, from 1900 to 2012. This is a wonderful tool to show the movements of populations, such as migrations from the south to urban areas such as Chicago that began in the 1910s. Click here to go to the article and see where people from your state are from, and to where people born in your state have migrated.
