Coming to America: Who and Where

A new analysis of real estate search data shows where people from other countries tend to move when immigrating to America.

"America, at its best, is a glittering symbol of promise to would-be immigrants. But where do they actually want to live in the United States?

Trulia, the real-estate listings site, has come up with the only data set we've seen that actually breaks that question down to the city level. Their infographic, Global Pursuits of the American Dream, was built using incoming real-estate searches on Trulia's website. These were then broken down by country of origin, and the city being searched."

For example, people searching from China tend to prefer New York and San Francisco, while those in Italy prefer New York and Miami Beach.
