More Moving Out Of Montana Than Moving In

I stopped by U-Haul the other day to pick up some boxes and saw a friend of mine there getting a truck to move west. Looking for work. It really is a shame that you have to move to survive, it’s tough here. But I read a survey..

United Van Lines recently released it’s annual migration study, which measures where Americans relocated in 2010. For the third straight year Washington, DC was the No. 1 location for “inbound” moves (64.3 percent), while New Jersey topped the list for “outbound” traffic (62.5 percent).

The findings are among the results of United Van Lines’ 34th annual “migration” study, which tracks where its customers move from and the most popular destinations over the past 12 months.

What surprised me was the fact that, according to the survey, more people are moving out than moving in to North Dakota, even though the state enjoys the lowest unemployment rate in the country. Meanwhile, Idaho and Oregon have high-inbound immigration and jobless rates of 9.4 percent and 10.5 percent respectively.

According to the report, outbound moves outpaced inbound moves in Montana, 47.9 to 52.1 percent.

At this rate we’ll never hit 1 million people.
