Posted by: Sherry Weeks on Monday, June 14, 2021

Millions of Americans relocated in 2020 and many due
to the COVID-19 pandemic. College students and young
adults moved home, and a new breed of remote working
Americans no longer tied down to a long commute
sought new places to call home.


Idaho ranked as the nation’s leader for inbound
moves—that is, people moving in—while New York
had the greatest outbound moves—people leaving
the state, according to the 2020 Atlas Van Lines
Migrations Patterns Study. The annual study tracked nearly 65,000 interstate
and cross-border household relocations from Jan. 1, 2020, to Dec. 11, 2020.


The following states had the highest inbound moves last year, according to
the study:
• Idaho (66.4 percent)
• North Carolina (64.6 percent)
• Maine (62.4 percent)
• New Hampshire (61.6 percent)
• Alabama (60.8 percent)
• District of Columbia (60.2 percent)
• New Mexico (60.0 percent)
• Nevada (59.8 percent)
• Alaska (58.6 percent)
• Kentucky (57.7 percent)
