“People moving into Maryland” refers to those people living in Maryland in 2008 but another state in 2007

“People moving out of Maryland” refers to those people living in Maryland in 2007 but another state in 2008

A “Ratio of people coming to going” value of 0.90 means that very every 100 people leaving Maryland for another state, 90 people are moving to Maryland from another state

For those aged 18-19, migration for college purposes (i.e. somebody moving away to go to school) can have a significant impact on the numbers in that category, and this factor should be kept in mind when interpreting the figures.

A significant fraction of people “without a high school diploma” or those earning “no income” or “$1-$9,999” in income are children aged 15-17.
