Native v. 'From Away': The Numbers

PPH columnist Charles Lawton:
The idea I find most intriguing is that northern Maine is "the real Maine," the
place where "real Mainers" live. Is there, I wondered, any demographic truth to
that belief? Is there, for instance, a significantly different percentage of
native-born Mainers in the rural parts of the state than in the urban parts?
Have more rural Mainers lived closer to home than urban Mainers? Is the
percentage of urban Mainers who have moved from away much larger than the
percentage of rural transplants?
- John C.L. Morgan
