Interesting............... From the United Van Lines survey:

"The South was a big draw as North Carolina came in as the top destination with a 64 percent inbound rate. Out West, Oregon was the second most popular inbound state at 62.5 percent.

Other states with high inbound rates were South Carolina, 60 percent; Nevada, 59.9 percent; Idaho, 59.3 percent; New Mexico and the District of Columbia, 57.9 percent; Alabama, 57.5 percent; Utah, 56 percent; Tennessee, 55.8 percent, and Montana, 55 percent.

On the outbound trail, Michigan tied with North Dakota for the top 66 percent outbound rate, followed by New Jersey, 60.9 percent; New York, 59.5 percent; Indiana, 58.2 percent; Pennsylvania, 57.0 percent; Louisiana, 56.4 percent and Ohio, 55.8 percent."

I am surprised Georgia is not on that list. Maybe they can't get here because of the Atlanta traffic.

Yes I did read that news item a couple of days ago and found it quite interesting. I guess it'll kind of predict where the growth is happening. It also shows the places with shrinking populations.
Many of the states were in between with not extremely inbound or out bound amounts.

LOL @ Figment 07

What Atlanta Traffic

I dread going any farther south than Hwy 20 at the Mall of Georgia and that's about 45min south for me sans traffic days.

Once in a blue moon I have to make one of the ugliest commutes...Down I85, and then around I285 to I75.. ..blech...I stress over it for days and days...LOL

I don't think I could even survive if I had to do that drive on a regular basis.

Interesting. I was surprised to see DC in the top ten. I'm interested in seeing the new official census figures when they're released in 2010 (well, I think they're actually released in 2011). I'm interested in seeing how the Katrina displacement will affect Louisiana, and seeing if Michigan's dire economic outlook will lead it to become one of the few states to record a population loss, and also just how much Florida's breakneck growth will have slowed as it seems the wave of hurricanes the other year, and general quality of life issues, have soured a lot of people on Florida and while it's still growing fast, much like California, a lot of people are fleeing the state as well.

It seems like people who are on the east or west coast tend to stay in their respective regions. NY'rs are heading to North Carolina and TN and have always headed to Florida. So, all the people in those states hate NY'rs. Californians head toward Oregon, Nevada and Arizona so people from those states hate Californians. So do people from Idaho, Montana and Washington State. The whole country hates NY'rs it seems, at least in the abstract sense. NY'rs couldn't care less but I get the impression that ex-Cali's do.

We moved from NY to CT to SoCal and are now in Oregon. Oregonians don't love us but are polite. I heard that in Idaho, an ex-Californian can get his house burned down or be flipped the bird on the road. Nice folks.

Pennsylvania is a "revolving-door" state. Here, we export our homegrown young college graduates to NYC/NJ, and then we import empty-nesters and retirees from NYC/NJ who are seeking a quieter, less expensive pace of life. Most of my peers see that starting salaries are tremendously higher in North Jersey than they are in Metro Scranton, so they all desire to be "making the big bucks." What they fail to factor in is that it would take $400,000 to purchase an average home in North Jersey, while that same lump of money would buy a suburban McMansion with many upgrades in my area. I may earn less than what I'm truly "worth" in Scranton as a CPA and hopefully future mayor-elect, but at least I'll be spending less time behind the wheel in gridlock and putting in overtime to "keep up with the Jones's" as my counterparts in North Jersey will be. On the flip side, the new "Rediscover Scranton" campaign has just been launched in order to entice middle-aged and older professionals back into the city from NYC/NJ, and many younger professionals are following suit.

I just looked at the census reports for Florida*:

Between 1990-2000, we had a 23.5% increase in population. Based on the estimated 2005 population, we had a population increase of 11.3% between 2000-2005. Looks like we're not gaining nearly as many now -- think a bunch are moving to TN, NC & GA!

For arguement sake, lets pretend that Florida had 100 people in 1990.

1990 = 100
2000 = 123.5 (a 23.5% increase over 10 years)
2005 = 137.5 (a 11.3% increase over 5 years)
2010 = 153.0 (IF another 11.3% increase occurs over 5 years)

Thus from 1990-2000 Florida increased by 23.5 citizens
..Yet from 2000-2010 Florida increased by 29.5 citizens

Thus there will be a larger influx of citizens from 2000-2010 than occured from 1990-2000, assuming the 2005-2010 percentage increase is the same as occured from 2000-2005.
