United Van Lines releases its annual study documenting where, why and in what numbers Americans are moving!
One overriding reason for moving in 2020 of course had to do with Covid-19, as concerns over big city density drove many to find less-dense locales in which to live.
But, for a state like New York, cost of living and quality of life issues also have played a significant role.
In 2020 the study found that inbound movement comprised 33.1% of traffic, while outbound moves to ‘greener pastures’ was 66.9%.

9.09% retirement 25.26%
6.22% health 5.15%
35.41% family 22.68%
8.61% lifestyle 18.04%
40.67% job 34.19%
Health reasons played a somewhat limited role as the rationale for moving away, with lifestyle and retirement showing the largest increase inbound vs. outbound.
Striking in the study is the continuing trend of New York being among the states with the largest exodus of people…
‘Among the top inbound states were South Carolina (64%), Oregon (63%), South Dakota (62%) and Arizona (62%), while New York (67%), Illinois (67%), Connecticut (63%) and California (59%) were among the states experiencing the largest exoduses.‘
