0

(STACKER) – It may appear that more people are leaving Richmond than moving in, but 22,396 people migrated to the city of Richmond from 2010 to 2020, according to census.gov. While the majority of newcomers to the Richmond area come from elsewhere in Virginia, people from all over the country want to live in River City.

Stacker compiled a list of the subways that send the most people to Richmond using data from the US Census Bureau. Subways are ranked based on the estimated number of people who moved to Richmond from the metro between 2014 and 2018. The links have been severed by gross migration.

Here are the metropolitan areas with the highest net migration to the Richmond area:
