A new study by United Van Lines highlights moving rates, showing which states are being flocked to (and which ones have residents going AWOL).
Moving In, Moving Out
Some think migration is for the birds, but United Van Lines has been tracking moving patterns of Americans all across the U.S. The moving organization released the results of their 2009 Migration Study recently, showing the states that have the most residents moving in and out, based on shipments of goods from the more than 140,000 household moves United Vans handled in 2009. If you don't see your state on the list, lucky you! Your home state is probably in a middle pack and has a "balanced" resident moving rate. With the national unemployment rate back under 10% (it dipped to 9.7% in January), fewer Americans might be moving this year to find another job, meaning the list might be very different next year. So, you want to know who's going to be sitting at the popular table in the cafeteria, don't you? Well then, read on. Photo Credit: loyaldefender2004
