Interestingly, they say that despite being an atypical year, Americans are following similar moving trends as prior years.  One thing that sets this report apart from others is the ability view & compare historic data thanks to their interactive chart.  Also, be sure to check out their first takeaway, which corroborates what we have been seeing for some time.

Their key takeaways:

  • People are fleeing California for Texas and Idaho.
  • Illinois, New York, and New Jersey are the three states with the most outbound moves.
  • The top five inbound states in 2020 are Idaho, Arizona, Tennessee, South Carolina, and North Carolina, with Tennessee overtaking South Carolina from the 2019 results.
  • Florida, Texas, and Colorado round out the top eight states for inbound moves.
  • Despite pandemic, people continued to move at rates comparable to 2019
