You are able to use the Apple program called Migration Assistant to transfer data however when updating your version (Especially in a big jump such as this) you should really be backing up everything to an external source (read: hard drive). I personally use Carbon Copy Cloner for this, it gets the job done.

Another thing that I would suggest (I did this recently) is when you update, start from a completely clean slate. This all depends on how tech-savvy and willing you are but I discovered loads of apps that made their way onto my Mac and I barely ever used them. I then transferred all my essentials from my external hard drive (My backup) and everything was hunky dory!
