The Census Bureau says former Californians make up about 9.7% of Arizona’s population, while 3.6% of Arizona residents come from Illinois.

So if it seems like everyone here is from somewhere else, you’re partly right.

About 60% right.

New figures from the U.S. Census Bureau show that fewer than 40% of state residents were born here.

And a separate report finds that nearly 3.9% of those living in Arizona last year were living somewhere else a year before that.

So where are all those Arizonans coming from?
