3 Studies Show North & South Carolina And Charlotte Are Most Moved To Areas
North and South Carolina remain among the 10 most "moved-to" states in the nation during 2018, ranking #8 for North Carolina and #6 for South Carolina according to United Van Lines’ 42nd Annual National Movers Study. North Carolina has remained steady in the #8 slot, while South Carolina has moved up from the #7 spot in 2017.
Charlotte, North Carolina has been a major beneficiary of this migration to North Carolina and areas of South Carolina bordering the state line. Charlotte is the largest city in North Carolina and now the 2nd largest city in the Southeast (after Jacksonsville, Florida). Namely:
US News & World Report ranked Charlotte, North Carolina in as one of The 25 Best Places people are moving to in 2018 and ranked Charlotte as #22 as a Best Place To Live in 2018.
Meantime, USA Today ranked the Charlotte region #11 in 2018 as one of the fastest growth areas in terms of population/migrations growth.
How Many Americans Move Each Year & Why
Did you know every year, some 40 million Americans (that's about 14% of the U.S. population) move at least once? While many of those moves are by younger people relocating within cities, it's the trends of Americans moving to warmer climates, more affordable areas, and better job opportunities that have largely determined migration patterns in recent decades.
No wonder both North and South Carolina and the Charlotte region have seen so much growth in recent years... they offer warmer climate, affordable life-style, and excellent job opportunities (Charlotte, especially, has been a magnet for significant job growth, attracting many major headquarters relocations.)
