Americans have been flocking south for decades, and Florida has been a big beneficiary of that migration.

Business Insider recently took a look at the US cities with the highest net migration since 2010, and noticed that over half of them were in the Sunshine State. For this list, we decided to focus on the places within Florida that have attracted the most newcomers over the last decade.

Using data from the US Census Bureau, we ranked the metropolitan statistical areas in Florida by total net migration between 2010 and 2018 — the number of people who moved into the metro area during that period from another part of the US or another country, minus people who moved out of the metro area — adjusted by the metro area’s 2010 population.

Here are the top 15 metro areas in Florida by that metric:
