WHO IS MOVING TO ND?
About one in five of new arrivals appear to be “returning North Dakotans,” having indicated North Dakota as their place of birth. From the data, it is impossible to tell when they left the state. But these individuals appear to have returned from at least 34 other states and 10 foreign countries. About 35 percent of these individuals moved from Minnesota. Former North Dakotans also appear to have returned in greater numbers from South Dakota, Montana, Washington and Arizona.
