A new estimator links migration data to a random utility model to compare the relative living standards of pairs of regions. An algorithm converts pairwise comparisons into rankings of the US states for 1970, 1980, 1990. The rankings indicate living standards were highest in the Northwest (1970, 1980) and the south Atlantic coast (1990). A nonparametric test suggests that the system was in disequilibrium in 1980 (probably due to energy price shocks), but near equilibrium in 1970 and 1980
