(STACKER) — The U.S. is among the most mobile countries in the world, but our rates of moving have slumped in recent decades. In 2019, for example, a lower percentage of Americans changed residence than any year prior since 1947 when migration statistics were first gathered by the Census Bureau. Between March of 2019 and 2020, just 9.3% of Americans moved.

American migration has been in some form of decline since the housing boom and economic growth of the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s. During that period, as much as 20% of the population moved each year.

Stacker compiled a list of where people in Virginia are moving to most using data from the U.S. Census Bureau. States are ranked by the number of people that have moved from Virginia in 2019.
