We posted a story yesterday about the states that supply the most newcomers to Erie County in a given year. But we can do better than that. The same federal report also contains a county-by-county breakdown of new residents. Click on the View Slideshow button to see the 30 U.S. counties (outside of New York) that sent the most people to Erie County between 2014 and 2015, the latest 12-month period for which official numbers are available.
Which state -- other than New York, of course -- supplies the most new residents to Erie County in a given year? You might assume that the answer would be an adjacent or nearby state. Perhaps Pennsylvania. Or maybe New Jersey or Ohio. But you would be wrong. Click on the View Slideshow button for a state-by-state rundown of newcomers to Erie County during 2014-2015, the most recent year covered by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Residents of Buffalo's Elmwood Village (ZIP code 14222) like to move around, with more than a quarter of them changing addresses in a given year. But people in East Amherst (ZIP 14051) prefer to stay put, with nearly 94 percent keeping the same residence from year to year, according to the latest federal statistics. Click on the View Slideshow button for a snapshot of residential mobility in Western New York's 49 major ZIP codes, all of which have more than 10,000 residents.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
