United Van Lines’ annual report on where its moving vans take people shows that Washington DC last year again had far more moves IN than relocations out.
United says it had 1,116 (58.5%) inbound moves to DC last year vs. 793 (41.5%) of their business. DC has remained inbound since the inception of the study (1977).
Virginia (51.6%) stayed strong with its 12-year inbound trend. However, Maryland (54.1%) retained its 16-year outbound tradition. Michigan (67.8%) once again captured the top outbound spot, followed by North Dakota (67.2%) and New Jersey (61.0%.) National report IS HERE.
These United Van stats, usually seen as a barometer of management-level relocations, reinforce the notion that many families find the Northern Virginia – D.C. area a good place to call home, particularly due to the strong job market.
