    UNITED VAN LINES 2012 MIGRATION STUDY REVEALS NORTHEASTERN U.S. EXODUS

    Washington D.C. the Most Popular Destination During the Election Year

    ST. LOUIS- The Northeast region leads the United States in outbound migration, according to the results of United Van Lines’ 36th annual “migration” study, which tracks which states the company’s customers move to and from during the course of the year. Washington, D.C., continues to lead the nation in inbound moves based on the study findings released today, which analyzed moves from the full year 2012.

    “As the nation’s largest household goods mover, United’s data is an accurate reflection of the overall U.S. moving trends,” explained Carl Walter, vice president of United Van Lines. “Tracking the number of inbound and outbound domestic moves helps provide insight into overall migration trends.”

    HERE IS THE REST OF THE STORY.....

    People who voted for taxes are fleeing taxes.
    People who voted for a nanny are fleeing from the nanny.

    It was no slight.

    Look at New York. People who are known to want higher taxes and a nanny state get elected, and then people leave. We'll be seeing the same thing in CA.

    Heck, we're even seeing it in Europe.

    There has been a generational shift from the north to the sun belt states in general. New Mexico doesn't have sufficient economic drivers to support population growth and is the exception. Part of this is comes from the shift in jobs along with development of sufficient climate control devices. Some of it is related to taxation too.

    My parents, just before they hit retirement age and cashed in their retirement savings (or at least accessed it) moved from the NE area to a more southernly locale to save substantial money. In doing so they saved 25-30% of their retirement funds, were able to buy (w/o a mortgage) a house with low property taxes, and be in a more suitable environment for their health.

    It used to be that many lived in the north because the heat of the south was insufferable. Now we can live in the south, tolerate the heat because of air conditioning, and enjoy warmer falls and winters. The church where I serve is in one of the fastest growing metro areas of the south.

    There is something to lower taxation, cheaper living, and less liberal politics...but that is part of the picture.

    The more important factor is, imho, the amount of young adults to (after going to college from rural upbringings) never return to those places and favor metro-areas to live. Within one generation, possibly two, we might see an abandoned rural USA where few live.

    I'd guess that many young adults are being priced out the NE and are moving to areas with lower housing costs and a lower tax burdens.

    It seems like half the people I meet in Tennessee are either from New York or Michigan.

    No, there's nothing here that you'd be interested in. TN is full of poisonous snakes, ticks and chiggers that love to eat northerners alive! You'd be better off staying right where you are. :smilewinkgrin:

    GEDs, no teeth, a trailor for the capitol building, etc...........The only jobs open are licking food stamps. State Motto "Squeal like a pig."

    Kentucky on the other hand, is the center of the latest technological advances, number one in higher education, and is leading the path to the future.

    And the Kentucky Derby. Yee Haw!!! :) But we have the Steeplechase. And Vanderbilt. And the Grand Ole Opry, lol. You are just bitter because of your bad experience with the CP in Nashville, SN. I hope you'll get over it.

    Guess that lets out Uncle Buds. Ate at Demos once and the food was great.

    Hey, Poncho, have you been to the Stones River National Battlefield yet? It's free and really nice. http://www.nps.gov/stri/index.htm


    Back on topic: I can see why people are leaving the NE, especially NYC. Sheesh, they dictate how much Coca Cola you can drink and tax you through the teeth. I flip when I see what property sells for there, absolutely ridiculous!! Yep, you can have the cold NE. I'll take living down here with the milder weather, friendly folk, great food, and good music.

    Wish I could find good Chinese food down here.

    Stones River Battlefield? Yeah I've been there many times. I've even paddled my kayak through the middle of Fortress Rosecrans . . . after spraying myself down with bug repellent and keeping my eye peeled for water moccasins.

    My daughter and I had a run in with some cotton mouths and TN ticks on a trip to Bucksnort.

    Been meaning to visit the Sam Davis home for awhile now. Maybe this summer.

    Down here in Palm Coast, Fl. it is about 75 to 80 percent from NY & NJ and about 10 percent from Pa. and Ct. and a larger amount from Russia and less than 1 percent from Florida. Now our county still has a lot from Florida.

    Oh yes, I went through Bowling Green, Ky. years ago and got a wife and brought her down south to Florida. Still go up to Ky. from time to time and visits her family in Concord, Ky. just out of Murray and to Albaton, Ky. along with Rich Lou, Auburn and Franklyn,Ky. Ky is about as far in the north as I go now that I'm retired.
