  About Half of the U.S. Population Moved Between 1995 and 2000, the Census Bureau Reports. About 120 million (46 percent) of the nation's population that was 5 years old and over in 2000 lived in a different home than they did in 1995. Of this mobile population, 54 percent moved within the same county, 21 percent changed counties within the same state, 18 percent moved to a different state, and 6 percent moved from abroad. According to the Census Bureau, Nevada led all states in the mobility of its population — 63 percent were movers. Colorado and Arizona followed at 56 percent each. California, Arizona and Nevada had the highest proportion of people who changed residences within the same county, about 31 percent each.  
  In 2000, about 60 percent of the U.S. population lived in the state where they were born. Louisiana, Pennsylvania and Michigan had the highest proportion of residents who lived in the state where they were born (79 percent, 78 percent and 75 percent, respectively), while Nevada, Florida and Arizona had the lowest (21 percent, 33 percent and 35 percent).
