Study reveals more employees moving to DFW from Houston than anywhere else

The study found the top 20 metros finding new jobs in Dallas

Over the last few years, people have been moving to Texas in record numbers, especially DFW. As more and more businesses decide to move to the Lone Star state, more job opportunities have opened up. Now a new study has revealed which metros around the country people are moving from to go to DFW for work, and the top city may come as a surprise.

Data website Stackers recently conducted a survey using the U.S. Census Bureau’s Jobs-to-Jobs Flows to determine which areas are seeing the biggest exodus to Texas. While many thought somewhere in California would top the list, surprisingly the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metro saw the most people move to DFW for work. According to CW33, 14,223 employees from Houston started new jobs in DFW in Q1 of 2021, which was the 2nd most common destination from Houston.

The rest of the top 5 saw even more Texas cities coming to DFW, with Austin-Round Rock-Georgetown at number two, Non-metropolitan areas in Texas at number 3, San Antonio-New Braunfels at number 4 and El Paso at number 5. As for outside of Texas, Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim was at number 6, with New York and Chicago metros landing in the top 10 as well. Apparently it’s not just California trying to take over DFW.
