ON THE MOVE

Profile America - Wednesday, May 28th. May kicks off the busiest moving season of the year. It's a time when moving vans and rental trucks show up in driveways and parking lots all across the country. Each year, one-in-eight of us changes our address; in 2013, about 36 million Americans over the age of 1 moved. Nearly two thirds of all moves are within the same county, and slightly less than 5 percent to another state. Men and women in their 20s are more apt to move, searching for a better place to live and in response to marriage, childbirth, and changing jobs. Renters are more likely to move than homeowners, and the rate of moving is lowest for those 65 and older. Among the most common state-to-state moves are New York to Florida, and California to Texas. You can find more facts about America's people, places and economy, from the American Community Survey, at www.census.gov.
