An annual study of where moving vans are needed indicated Colorado growth has slowed. United Van Lines has tracked migration patterns since 1977.
The 2010 study was released today. It shows large movement out New Jersey and New England, as well as the Great Lakes region.
Washington D.C. was the top destination for those moving in for the third year in a row.
In the West, Oregon had its 23rd year of inbound migration. Idaho also had more people moving in than out. Nevada, which was part of the high-inbound traffic for 24 consecutive years, is now considered a balanced state. Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico are other Western states that went from high-inbound traffic in 2009 to a balanced status in 2010, meaning about as many people moved in as out.
