In their 41st annual National Movers study, United Van Lines says Americans are moving West while the Northeast and Midwest continue to lose population. They report that more residents left Illinois than any other state and that Vermont had the most inbound moves. Several states were balanced (gaining approximately the same number of residents as those that left). United’s annual study tracks their customers’ state-to-state migration patterns over the past year.
“For more than 40 years, United Van Lines has been tracking which states people are moving to and from. We also survey our customers to understand why they are moving from state-to-state,” said Melissa Sullivan, director of marketing communications at United Van Lines. “As the nation’s largest household goods mover, the data we collect is reflective of national migration trends.”
