Map Shows Which States Americans Are Moving To And Leaving



United Van Lines recently published its inbound and outbound moving data for the U.S. (This is different from the map from Atlas Van Lines we published last week, which actually shows slightly different data).

Seth Kadish at Vizual Statistix has compiled the data into a spectacular map that captures the migration flows.

It looks at which states had the greatest share of inbound moves as a percent of total moves.

Looks like everyone is moving south and west...

1. We moved from Southeast to Northeast.

We were tired of being ruled by GOPNRAteahadists.

Didn't like the politics of the south, but also really hated the summers.

3. Most of the people who 'move' to MA don't do so in a United Van Lines truck...

They come, with their parents, with all their shit stuffed in the back of the family SUV/minivan. They unpack and they start classes. They stay for four years (five if they're on a co-op plan), they acquire stuff, and they sometimes go on to grad school. The ones who leave sell their junk to underclassmen and take a plane home. The ones who stay keep acquiring more stuff and stay in the city!

relatively young and high paid people. Boston is becoming a younger and younger city.

33. If only U Haul

kept their equipment in better shape. Part of my job is corporate relocations......many of the younger, more mobile employees want to do it themselves. If they're renting trucks, I try to steer them to Budget and Penske. I have 9 U Haul locations within 10 miles of me.......local rentals fine, one way across the country, not so much. Their equipment looks old and fragile.

34. I used u-haul.. once.. for a cross country move.

Their car dolly/trailer broke on I-20 in bumfuck, Lousiana. Luckily I was stopped for gas and noticed the hitch hanging almost loose, and there was a local center who brought us a new trailer.

I can only imagine the havoc had it broken all the way through and was only being held by the safety chains.

26. North Carolina has concentrated technology areas within the state and Charlotte is the

biggest banking hub outside of New York City. The reason why President Obama barely won North Carolina in 2008 and barely lost it in 2012 is because of the voters in the advanced part of the state canceling out rural voters. The population shift is why I see North Carolina becoming blue, the people moving in or getting college educations there and staying are educated and more liberal than old line residents.

47. We moved to NC--Chapel Hill--in 2000 and I love Chapel Hill.

Oldest son was in high school when we moved and he's stayed here--now 27--
and working for a young, hip, very successful software company that designs apps
for smart phones.

I don't know where your SIL and her hubby bought, but if they are in the Triangle
area or Asheville, or even parts of Mecklenburg county (Charlotte) they will be surrounded
by fellow dems--even if it is a gated community.

On edit: we left California in 1988: lived in MO for 6 years and NE for 6 years
before moving to NC. You couldn't PAY me to go back to CA.

23. That's North Dakota. But South Dakota has low costs and low unemployment.

 

And low wages.

And it's -20 there right now.

On edit: Someone down thread mentioned that United Van Lines caters to affluent retirees, among others. Just off hand, I know several couples who left SD as young adults, had their kids, retired, and are now selling their expensive homes on the Coasts and moving back to SD to buy equivalent homes at much less cost and having nice nest eggs left over.

Maybe Atlas isn't as popular in some states. I've moved a few times and never used them. I have used Uhaul twice, Ryder once, Penske once, my own truck a couple of times.

20. Before I'd even consider it as a viable chart I would have to ask this

What about other moving lines and their patterns. Or people who move themselves (when I moved from PA to DE I moved it all by myself). I'd also like to know who the top 3 moving companies are on a state by state business.

I expect next week for Faux News to regard this as scientific fact even though it hardly isn't based one one particular moving line.

21. United Van Lines is either Top Corporate or Retirees who still have Money

Moving to those states.

I'm hearing that NC is midway between kids who live in other parts of East Coast and good Air Transport to kids who are scattered across Midwest and CA with Texas thrown in as one of the easy states to get to.

Map seems to show that it's NC, NJ...Northeast folks following kids.. Those folks would have most money to use United Van Lines along with a scattering of Top Line Job transfers who qualify for large Moving Van Line.

...or there's enough people fleeing the batshit crazy state to somewhat balance out the retirees.

Oregon is interesting too. I'd consider retiring there too. Legal physician-assisted suicide.

46. Utah is one of the fastest growing states in the country and is one of the worst performing here...

This has been a common problem for Utah and why, compared to other western states, it continues to lag behind others. A great deal of our growth is totally internal - Mormons having Mormon babies (and a lot of 'em). I wouldn't be surprised if most of the growth we've experienced over the years comes from children. This list pretty much shows that not many people are moving to Utah - at least, not at the level to make up for those leaving.

So, who's leaving Utah? Is it the Mormons or the non-Mormons?
