The U.S. population is on the move, and not just down the block, according to a new report from the Census Bureau.

It has updated its “Census Flows Mapper” to include data from the 2011-2015 American Community Survey. Census Flows Mapper is a web mapping application that allows users to view and save county-to-county migration flows in the United States. Users can sort and customize maps by dataset, type of migration flow, colors and range of movers.

Each dataset features different characteristics using five-year American Community Survey data. The updated tables cover migration flows between counties by selected characteristics including sex, age, race and Hispanic origin. Additional characteristics such as household income, educational attainment and employment statistics are available in previous datasets.

Here’s a look at some of the ebbing and flowing among Central Valley counties:
