Not sure if this will help you, but it pained me to see so many views of your question and no responses. :-)
Here is data from the 2010 census, provided by INEGI, the government's statistics people. Hopefully the URL I give you will come through in English. You may view any MX state by selecting it at the top. Then go down under the blue bar heading of "Población, Hogares y Viviendas" and further down to "Migración" for the figures.
I am not sure of the validity of the Census figures, and they may just be governmental guesstimates. For the cumulative figures (as a percentage) they use the term "non-native", and I don't know if that means just foreigners, or if it includes anyone (Mexican or foreigner) who wasn't born in that particular MX state. They probably don't know either.
For the state of Michoacan, they give a cumulative percentage of 8.97%, which would translate into 390,288 non-natives living in Michoacan. For Guanajuato state, the number is 9.02%, and 494,870 people. For Jalisco state, the numbers are 13.08% and 961,469 people. They don't give figures for the country as a whole, or for specific cities within a state.
