Last week, national moving company Atlas Van Lines published their annual review of Household Moving Migration Patterns in the United States and Canada. By tallying up all the moves (both inbound and outbound) they performed in each state and compiling the data into a handy infographic, they have provided us with a snapshot of where people were moving from and to in 2013.

Interestingly, only nine states/provinces saw a higher percentage (over 55%) of inbound traffic than outbound, making them the locations most likely to have increased in population in the last year:

  • Oregon
  • Idaho
  • Montana
  • North Dakota
  • Texas
  • Tennessee
  • North Carolina
  • New Hampshire
  • Newfoundland
