Kitsap County has moved up the list of destinations for people moving out of King County, according to a U.S. Census Bureau report.
The bureau estimated 2,261 people moved from King to Kitsap in a five-year period from 2012 to 2016, making Kitsap the No. 5 county of choice for residents exiting King. Counties ranking ahead of Kitsap were Pierce, Snohomish, Los Angeles and Whatcom.
An estimated 1,786 residents moved from Kitsap to King over the same five-year period, meaning Kitsap gained 475 more residents from King than it lost to King. The estimates are based on the American Community Survey, which asks respondents if they lived in a different place one year before.
