More than 50,000 people moved from California to Nevada between July 2017 and July 2018, the second-highest amount in the past 10 years, according to newly released U.S. Census Bureau estimates.
Nearly four-in-10 people who moved to Nevada from another U.S. state in those 12 months were from California, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
There are more adults in Nevada who were born in California than were born in Nevada, said Robert Lang, executive director of Brookings Mountain West at UNLV.
Overall, about 127,000 people moved to Nevada from other states and another 14,000 came from abroad.
Texas and a variety of western states including Arizona, Utah and Washington, were other major sources of new Nevadans.
