I've never lived more than about 50 miles from where I was born. Does that indicate some problematic lack of wanderlust? Or do I just really love Superdawg?
According to an official-looking color-coded map posted at NewGeography.com recently, I'm not the only one who hasn't gone mobile. They say that more than two-thirds of Americans still live in their home states. For example, 82 percent of New York Staters were born in New York. But just 41.7 percent of Alaskans were born in Alaska. NewGeography's take: "I suppose if you are living in Alaska, you've come there for good reason."
