The US South is growing fast. Over the next 20 years, its population will grow more than 28 million, almost as much as the rest of the US combined. Much of this population growth will be natural but a significant proportion will be driven by migration flows – both people moving to the South from other regions within the US, and people moving to the US from abroad.

Will some states experience higher foreign migrant inflows than others? Finally, what does the rise of the South mean for commodity demand?
