Migration out of Michigan halts, moving data shows
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A new study by the nation's largest moving company indicates that migration out of Michigan has finally slowed to a virtual halt.
Suburban St. Louis-based United Van Lines released its 37th annual migration study to The Associated Press. The company tracks the states its customers move to and from over the course of a year. It includes Washington, D.C., but excludes Alaska and Hawaii.
For 2013, Oregon was the top moving destination with 63 percent of interstate moves inbound. New Jersey repeated as the state with the highest percentage of outbound moves, at 63 percent.
Michigan was about evenly balanced between inbound and outbound moves. The state had 16 years of outbound migration and was tops in outbound moves from 2006 through 2009.
