According to the U.S. Census, 3,172 people have made the move from Texas to Alaska from 2009-2013, the most of any state.

The next highest amount of transplants to Alaska came from Washington, California and Oregon.

"Texas has a significant military population and a large petroleum industry, which could explain some of its status as the leader in Alaska migration," noted the Fairbanks Newsminer.
