PHOENIX -- A native Arizonan living in Arizona is reportedly a rate thing.

According to the Daily Mail, a vast majority of current Arizona residents are transplants from elsewhere in the world.

Florida and Nevada were also states comprised mainly of people who moved from their birth state.

The report also showed that western states have more transplants and people in the Midwest and East Coast tend to stay in their home state.

Of the 24 counties with more than 90 per cent of residents living in their birth states, 11 are in Mississippi (four) and Louisiana (seven).
