    To what ends?
    For things like registering a car I think it is about a month.
    It also depends on whether you are legal. To get instate school fees if you are American Its about a year if you are illegal its about 5 minutes.
    Enter the same question into Google for all the different flavors.

    Once you rent or buy a home, or establish a mailing address, you are a resident.  It is this way, nationwide.   ( I never renew my Drivers License until they expire, no matter where I am , or how long I have been there.).........but , I do get mail, so I am technically, a resident.

    Knowing small towns, quite well, you may always find yourself being the " newcomer".   This happens far less in larger cities such as Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, etc.......

    A resident is someone who resides ( or lives there).
