The Sacramento region is experiencing more growth from domestic migration – people moving to the area from other parts of California and the United States – than during any other time since the housing boom, according to new estimates from the California Department of Finance.
About 8,500 more people came to the Sacramento region from elsewhere in the USA than left during the 2017 fiscal year. Net domestic migration into Sacramento rose about 45 percent from fiscal year 2016 to fiscal year 2017.
The last time domestic migration was so high was during 2005.
But domestic migration in Sacramento is nowhere near the levels seen in the early 2000s, when about 28,000 more people came to the area from elsewhere in the USA each year than left.
