FastFact: American Mobility Patterns Show Little Change
Although the percentage of Americans moving and changing residences reached historic lows in 2015 and 2016, the patterns of mobility have not shifted significantly for decades, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey.
The data showed, for example, that the distance Americans move has changed little in recent years, and fewer movers are relocating to a different state.
And between 2015 and 2016, 61.6% of all movers relocated within the same county. Back in 1948, the total reached 67%.
