Did you know that the average American moves 12 times over a lifetime? That’s a lot of moving around each year! To find out where people are moving, check out the newly-released United Van Lines’ Migration Study. This annual report tracks the states the company’s customers are moving to and from over the course of each year.
The states with the most people moving in are South Dakota, followed by Vermont, Oregon, Idaho, South Carolina, Washington, Washington, D.C., North Carolina, Nevada and Arizona. Markets ‘in balance,’ meaning that there’s about the same number of people moving in as are moving out, include states such as California, New Mexico and Delaware. The survey includes people moving for employment as well as retirees.
Which states are people leaving? New Jersey, Illinois, New York, Connecticut and Kansas round out to the top five states with more people moving away than moving in. For more results of this annual study, go to this link. United Van Lines is the nation’s largest moving company.
