The State of Texas Sees a Higher Net Gain of Incoming Relocations Than Any Other State

According to a report recently released by Allied Van Lines, the state of Texas remains the number one state for residential relocations.  This isn't the first time the state has received this honor, however, as it was also ranked number one during the previous four years.

In the report, which is officially named the 41st Annual Magnet States Report, tracks migration patterns throughout the United States.  The company found that 3,988 people moved out of Texas with the help of Allied Van Lines, while 5,891 people moved into the state.  As such, the state had a total net gain of 1,903 new residents. 

Although this number is down from the previous year, which saw a net gain of 2,041 is still far above the next highest ranked State.  In fact, North Caroline came in second place on the list, and that state saw a net gain of only 800.  Virginia, which came in third place, saw a gain of 398 new residents.

While Texas enjoyed the highest net gain, it did not come in first place in terms of the total number of incoming and outgoing relocations.  That honor goes to California, which saw a total number of shipments of 11,400 from Allied Van Lines.  Texas, on the other hand, had a total of 9,879 moves.
