U.S. Migration: Where is Everyone Going?

In the land of the free and home of the brave, everyone has their choice of where they want to live.  You can stay in the same state you were born in or move to the other side of the country if you choose to do so.  Many people move for work, retirement, or to just be closer to their family.  But what states are seeing the biggest influx of people moving to them?  United Van Lines, a moving company that operates throughout the nation, offers a questionnaire to their customers to try and learn why people are moving and where they are going.  The data recorded is from 2017. 

Top 10 Outbound States in 2017:

1. Illinois

2. New Jersey

3. New York

4. Connecticut

5. Kansas

6. Massachusetts

7. Ohio

8. Kentucky

9. Utah

10. Wisconsin 

United Van Lines facilitated 8,157 moves to and from the state of Illinois in 2017, and 63.4% of those moves were for people leaving the state.  Most of the people claimed to be moving for a new job or company transfer.

Top 10 Inbound States in 2017

1. Vermont

2. Oregon

3. Idaho

4. Nevada

5. South Dakota

6. Washington

7. South Carolina

8. North Carolina

9. Colorado

10. Alabama

United Van Lines conducted only 254 moves to and from the state of Vermont in 2017, and 67.7% of them were for people moving to the state. In Oregon, 64.7% of the 3,459 moves were inbound, and in Idaho, 63.4% of shipments were for those moving to the state.  Again, most claim the reason for the move was for a new job or company transfer.  Nevada has seen a huge influx of people from surrounding states since Tesla built its Gigafactory right outside of Reno, NV boosting the economy and increasing home prices.  Colorado ranked number 9, which might surprise a lot of locals that have been complaining for years now that too many people are moving to Denver.  I'm sure many people are happy with the number 9 ranking and might even want to see Colorado off of that top 10 in the near future.
