North Carolina is the Third Most Popular State for People to Move to!
How about that? North Carolina is in the top tier of states that have the highest percentage of inward migration versus outward. After the District of Columbia, North Carolina is the only other mid Atlantic state to have a positive inward migration. The state moved up from number 10 in 2009 to number three last year.
South Carolina also saw a high inward migration and on the West Coast the states of Oregon (2nd) and Idaho had high inward migration.
The states going the other way who had more people leave than move in were led by New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois. The findings are a result of United Van Lines 34th annual migration study.
What brings folks to North Carolina, jobs, family and weather in a nut shell, I'll bet the majority of people who come here do so for one of those reasons. The schools, roads, affordable housing, beach and mountains, golf, fishing, health care don't hurt!
I will do a follow up to see where people are coming from, the last time I checked New York was at the top of the list, which is now a neutral state with almost equal inward and outward migration.
