I came across an interesting infographic put together by Atlas Van Lines which they put together yearly showing the move-in and move-out patterns for each of the 50 states.
For two years in a row Idaho has been the top "Move-In" state with Washington state coming in at number two for 2017. The outbound states are nearly a straight line across the middle of the top half of the US.
States that stuck out as "balanced" meaning the move-in and move-out were about on par were interesting as CA, TX, and FL were part of that club. We typically think of FL as a move-in kind of place with the population getting older.
Looking at the various states and their in and out flows got me to wondering whether recreational drug laws really were making a difference or not so I dug up a similar map that showed the various states which categorized the states as being legal for Recreational, Medical, Cannabidiol (oil product made from hemp and marijuana), or had no laws at all.
What I found was that:
So while, recreational drugs are having a definite affect they are not always the significant driver bringing people in. It does seem though that states that have not made any formal movement on the issue are less attractive to those packing up the truck.
Would be interesting to see further why the land of spuds is on a growth track now for two years running and it does make that list of states that have not made any accommodations at all. If you have some idea would love to hear your thoughts.
