ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The annual study of moving trends by the nation’s largest moving company shows that Oregon and the Carolinas are seeing more people move in, while people are leaving the Northeast.
United Van Lines released details of its 38th annual study on Friday. The St. Louis-based company each year tracks the states its customers move to and from.
For 2014, the states with the highest percentages of inbound movement were, in order, Oregon, South Carolina, North Carolina, Vermont and Florida.
Two northeastern states, New Jersey and New York, had the highest percentages of people moving out, followed by Illinois, North Dakota and West Virginia.
Missouri trended toward the outbound -- 53 percent of moves were leaving instead of arriving.
The study includes Washington, D.C., but excludes Alaska and Hawaii.
