States where people in Texas are getting new jobs

Jobs are one of the biggest reasons people move. Areas with growing job markets like Texas are gaining residents, while states with sluggish markets experience brain drain as workers move to places that can support their careers. Stacker analyzed data from the U.S. Census Bureau Jobs-to-Jobs Flows to determine the states where people from Oregon are finding the most new jobs. States are ranked by the number of people from Texas that started a new job in the second quarter of 2020. Data is not available for Alaska, Arkansas, and Mississippi.

In Q2 2020, 49,837 people from Texas started a job in another state. Keep reading to find out which states were most common.
