Each year families pack up their belongings and move to a new home, sometimes out of state. Tracking where they go—and where they’re leaving from—paints an interesting picture of U.S. migration.

This past year, United Van Lines, a moving company that operates throughout the country, moved about 110,000 families and provided each with a simple questionnaire to discover the reasons they were moving.

That's all good stuff. It does have a certain slant however...missing the do-it-yourselfers, the college kids who just bring a few boxes in dad's car, etc. It should slant toward established households in the upper-middle income range.

The results aren't adding up. Utah is one of the fastest growing states overall right now and I know for a fact Massachusetts, New York and Connecticut while not moving hotspots are in the plus category for population gain.

The last three have a significant outflow domestically, even while they're growing.

Alabama does seem to be getting retired transplants from the Midwest lately. I live in a small town most people have near heard of, yet I know of several houses recently sold to empty nesters from Ohio and Wisconsin. The ones with money seem buy near the beach, while the others choose smaller towns farther inland.

Utah has a higher than average birth rate. It has performed this trick (high growth while losing people to domestic migration) before.

I know some who live in Alabama for a few winter months, and then return to their home in Wisconsin, the rest of the year. They go to Gulf Shores.

Vermont is a really nice place to live if you can survive the winters. It has some of the best scenery in the country, a strong economy with decent wages and extremely low unemployment, and lots of "safety net" programs. People here are likely to be really friendly and the pace of life is slower. Billboards and roadside advertising is restricted or illegal. It's mostly irreligious and very actively supportive of minorities and LGBTQ folks. Housing is not cheap but neither is it insane yet. Can't say I'm surprised lots of people are coming here.

Clickbait and not a good representation of where people are moving to and from. Raw numbers indicate completely different results vs. percentage.
