Hennepin County stole eight residents from Maine’s Penobscot County between 2006 and 2010. Meanwhile, it lost 10 people to the Aleutians East Borough in Alaska during the same time period.
A U.S. Census Bureau interactive map that went live Tuesday emphasizes just how far flung movements are between the 1.1 million-person county and the rest of the country. During the survey period, 31,084 people moved to Hennepin County from a different state while 30,550 people moved from here to a different state.
Movement wasn’t limited to the United States either. Hennepin County had 9,268 people move in from abroad.
Of course, migration was biggest within Minnesota—and Hennepin County saw nearly 10,000 more people leave than come in. The county had 43,632 people move to other Minnesota Counties. It had a whopping 3,825-person net loss to Anoka County alone.
By contrast, it saw just 35,662 people move in from other Minnesota Counties. The biggest gain came from Washington County, from which Hennepin County had a net gain of 772 people.
