Texas continued its strength in relocation according to the 2015 Texas Relocation Report (PDF) released by the Texas Association of REALTORS®. Texas ranked 2nd (behind Florida) for out of state resident population gains in 2014, with 538,572 people moving to Texas from other states. Out of state residents came mostly from California (63,591), followed by Florida (40,930), Oklahoma (25,096), Louisiana (23,805), and Illinois (23,258) based on US Census Bureau data. Don’t let the large number fool you into thinking Texas gained a half a million people though, as Texas also ranked 3rd for the number of residents moving out of state (California took the top spot, with Florida coming in 2nd). This loss of 435,107 Texas residents to other states resulted in a net gain of 103,465 out of state residents in 2014, which is still an impressive amount of people moving to the Lone Star State.
