Dakota County stole 14 residents from Idaho’s Ada County between 2006 and 2010. Meanwhile, it lost 25 people to Honolulu County in Hawaii during the same time period.
A U.S. Census Bureau interactive map that went live on Tuesday emphasizes just how far flung movements are between the 384,000-person county and the rest of the country. During the survey period, 7,266 people moved to Dakota County from a different state while 8,772 people moved from here to a different state.
Movement wasn’t limited to the United States either. Dakota County had 2,002 people move in from abroad.
Of course, migration was biggest within Minnesota—and Dakota County saw almost 10,000 more people leave than come in. The county had 24,404 people move to other Minnesota Counties. It had a 614-person net loss to Scott County alone.
By contrast, it saw just 15,307 people move in from other Minnesota Counties. The biggest gain came from Ramsey County, from which Dakota County had a net gain of 602 people.
