“The U.S. only saw a moving deficit to two of the countries on the top destination and origin lists, demonstrating the U.S. economy’s international strength,” said Michael Stoll, economist, professor and chair of the Department of Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles.

 

Some key trends emerged in the 2013 migration patterns:

Europe

European countries saw a high volume of inbound and outbound moves with Germany and the U.K. taking the top spots on both the origin and destination lists. In comparison to 2012 data, France moved to No. 5 from No. 6 on the destination list and Italy stayed at No. 13. Switzerland appeared at the No. 9 spot and Belgium fell slightly to No. 13 from No. 12.

Asia Pacific

Japan moved up on the destination list to No. 7 from No. 10. After joining the ranking in 2012, Hong Kong moved to No. 14 from No. 15 on the top destinations. In 2013, China had a moving deficit to the U.S.

Central and South America

Brazil moved to No. 12 from the No. 14 spot on the top origin list, and held steady at No. 11 on the destination list. Chile fell from the top destination list where it came in at No. 12 in 2012.

Historic Hacienda Heights

During Spanish rule, Hacienda Heights was a part of Rancho La Puente, which was operated by the nearby Mission San Gabriel Arcángel in San Gabriel. The Rancho was eventually acquired by John A. Rowland and William Workman in 1845 via a Mexican land grant, and eventually acquired by Elias “Lucky” Baldwin. In 1912, his descendant, Anita Baldwin, sold the property to Edwin Hart and Jet Torrance. The pair subdivided the area and named it North Whittier Heights, which became known for avocado, citrus and walnut orchards, in 1913. However, from the Great Depression era to the early 1940s, citrus growing became unprofitable because of pests and diseases, setting the impetus for the area’s transformation into a suburb.

Originally an agricultural town, beginning in the 1940s and accelerating in the 1950s, suburban residential development, which occurred southward (beginning on subdivisions near Kwis Avenue), transformed Hacienda Heights into a residential or bedroom community. In 1961, the Hacienda Heights Branch of the Los Angeles County Public Library opened. The following year, in 1961, the area was renamed Hacienda Heights. In 1964, the local newspaper, the Hacienda Heights Highlander, was established. In the 1970s, much of Hacienda Heights, particularly along the northern slopes of Puente Hills, was developed for suburban single-family housing, which attracted younger, more affluent and educated families.
