The date shows percentage of moves, not raw numbers. So if you only had 10 moves, but 6 of them were in to the state, you'd get that percentage. I doubt, very much, that the raw numbers of people moving would show Oregon a top state. We've only got a population of around 4 million, and more than half of that is in the area of our one large city, Portland.

If the list was by absolute number of people moving, I doubt Oregon would be anywhere on the top of the lists.

Last time I checked the Sunbelt states are still where it is AT both in terms of percentage and raw total. Expect states like Georgia, Texas, Arizona and Florida to continue dominating...with the Northeast losing out, and Western states staying neutral (meaning, still growing, but only enough to maintain its relative percentage of people when compared to the rest of the U.S.). I hear some rust belt cities are picking up, but haven't really looked at numbers to verify.

Weather and housing prices...that's why people have been moving South in droves for years.

Yeah, and I don't see this changing anytime soon.

I'm confused by the high outbound statistics out of North Dakota and Utah. I was under the (false?) impression that both states are booming economically with a low unemployment and a lot of new people moving in.

I also don't think tons of people are moving to Vermont...

I love these numbers, they are flawed. It depends on a variety of factors, not just hey people are moving here, it must be great.

Northeast still has the largest congestion of people overall.

That could explain it, too though, just cause you move somewhere for a job, depending on your lifestyle, the weather or people could make you move back out instantly. But this would mean its a INSANE amount of people going to the Dakotas , feeling that winter weather and packing right back up, lol, who knows.
