Thanks to statistics data, we can now see where the population is moving to and we can also see why they are moving. People are moving to areas in the west like California and Washington because of the amount of outdoor activities, job opportunities, and the nice weather that they seem to have year round. Some are moving east to enjoy the weather as well, many of them retirees wanting to move somewhere warm. Not every state is having a lot of people move to it though, like Illinois, for example, so many people are moving out of this state.
- Over ten percent of the U.S population moved in the previous year.
- People are moving to states with warmer weather. Florida, Texas, and California are popular destinations.
- The desire for a better home or apartment is the key reason people decide to move.
“Twenty years ago, 1998, 16% of Americans moved, while in 2018 only 10.1% of Americans moved.”
