Let's see, the creative types head for Seattle or Silicon Valley, the retirees head for Florida, etc., but why are most people heading into other parts of Pennsylvania?

I've heard that Pennsylvania has the largest number of in-state retirees in the nation. I guess people just like the state.

Where'd you get that data? I'm taking a data visualization class and would love to play with that dataset.
