ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Almost 25,000 residents moved from Miami-Dade County to Broward County in 2011, making it the largest county-to-county migration flow in Florida.
Figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday ranked the migration of former Miami-Dade residents into Broward County as the sixth biggest county-to-county migration flow in the nation.
Ranked only higher were migration flows into and out of Los Angeles and surrounding counties.
But more than 11,000 Broward residents moved to Miami-Dade in 2011, so Broward had a net gain of only 13,000 residents from Miami-Dade County.
Other large net gains in Florida came from Caribbean residents moving to Miami-Dade County, Hillsborough County residents moving to Pasco County in metro Tampa and Orange County residents moving to Osceola County in metro Orlando.
