PHOENIX — It's no secret Phoenix is a popular destination for people looking to relocate from around the U.S. But a new analysis of U.S. Census data from Bloomberg shows how many on an average day are moving to the Valley of the Sun.

According to Bloomberg, 200 people arrive in greater Phoenix on a daily basis. That was the average number of new arrivals to the Valley from 2017 to 2018, according to Bloomberg's analysis.

That represents a 26-person gain from the previous period of 2016-17, when metro Phoenix welcomed 174 daily new arrivals.

That daily average is behind only the Dallas area, which welcomes 212 new residents on average daily, according to Bloomberg. Those averages include both domestic and international migration inflows.
