Austin is the top beneficiary of tech-related migration in the past 12 months, according to data from Microsoft Corp.’s LinkedIn profiles. Nashville and Charlotte also saw noteworthy migration rates.

The Texas capital captured a net inflow of 217 software and information technology company workers per 10,000 existing ones, according to data from May 2020 to April 2021 provided by LinkedIn. That’s the best net migration rate among 35 metropolitan areas with gross tech migration of at least 2,000 LinkedIn users in the past 12 months.
