On the flip side of the study, states with more net moves out of the state include Nebraska, North Dakota, Connecticut, Michigan, and New York, each with more than 60% of the moves directed out of the states.
The 2007 Customer Relocation Study tracks where Mayflower customers moved to and from and why.
According to the study, 55.3% of customers who moved in 2007 had relocated at least one other time in the last five years. That figure was up slightly from 2006. Of that group, 44.7% said they had moved once, 28.8% had moved twice, and 16% had moved three times.
Nearly half of the moves were job related. Company transfers were 12.3% and new jobs 35.7%. Nearly a third of the relocations (30.4%) were for retirement.
