Americans want something more and they are making it known with their feet, according to United Van Lines Movers Study. The latest data showing which states are people are moving to versus fleeing shows inbound states are in the West and South while the Northeast and Midwest are places to leave in search of something more.
With its mountain vistas and strong job market, Colorado is among the top 20 states people choose to find a better way of life.
But what is the “something more” that has people hitting the road? Across all regions, a major driver of migration is a career change, as approximately one out every two people who moved with United Van Lines in the past year left for a new job or company transfer.
