Hi, I am trying to determine how many people in total are moving into a state. How could I go about showing this? Which method would work best?

What data do you have?

Are you interested in where they are from? or just the aggregate?

Do you need to do this in arcgis online?

You may find some inspiration in the United States Census Bureau's tools and datasets aimed to address migration within the United States.

Here is an article from Census that discusses the tools: https://www.census.gov/library/stories/2019/04/moves-from-south-west-dominate-recent-migration-flows....
