Miami-Dade to Broward is Florida's biggest migration flow

Almost 25,000 residents moved from Miami-Dade County to Broward County in 2011, making it the largest county-to-county migration flow in Florida.

Figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday ranked the migration of former Miami-Dade residents into Broward County as the sixth biggest county-to-county migration flow in the nation.

Ranked only higher were migration flows into and out of Los Angeles and surrounding counties.

But more than 11,000 Broward residents moved to Miami-Dade in 2011, so Broward had a net gain of only 13,000 residents from Miami-Dade County.

Other large net gains in Florida came from Caribbean residents moving to Miami-Dade County, Hillsborough County residents moving to Pasco County in metro Tampa and Orange County residents moving to Osceola County in metro Orlando.

How about numbers for migrants from out of country moving into Florida, and also American citizens from out of Florida moving into Florida--the latter should be many more people.

I wonder what they are running away from??

Great; now all of the psychos on public assistance and drug gangs are now leaving Miami since most of the local towns are filthy and abandoned.

My family came to Miami in the teens (1910s) from Key West, but I avoid Dade County like the plague! Unrestrained condo developers have turned its central arteries into parking lots. Strage people speaking strange languages seem to dominate. And those who speak English seem to be argumentative and rude, to a degree that makes New Yorkers seem positively downhome and friendly. A cult of materialism seems to dominate, forcing one to expend ever more on cars, clothes and condos just to keep up with the flashly locals forever dropping celebrity names. Few local resources go to libraries, parks, and public culture. Local police are corrupt, politicians, too. And everything seems to be for sale, which I suspect would suit the South American political expatriate, reformed cocaine cowboy and Marielito classes that seem now to dominate Miami-Dade County.
