Moving study: People continuing to move west




ST. LOUIS — Tracking statistics from the moving company United Van Lines indicate that Americans are still heading west, while parts of the Northeast and Midwest are losing people.

The suburban St. Louis-based moving company on Tuesday released its 41st annual National Movers Study, which tracks customers’ state-to-state migration patterns.

Three of the top four destination states are in the West: Oregon, Idaho and Nevada.

The outlier is Vermont, a Northeast state that had the highest percentage of inbound migration in 2017.
