United Van Lines just released their "42nd Annual National Movers Study," revealing the states where the most people moved to and from in 2018.
Vermont is the state where most people moved to in 2018, with 72.6% of moves to the state being inbound. Oregon is once again second with 63.8%, followed by Idaho with 62.4%. New states making the Top Ten this year include Arizona and District of Columbia.

This is the tenth straight year New Jersey has landed in the Top Ten. Iowa is among the new additions to the Top Ten this year (55.5% of moves are OUT),along with Montana (55%) and Michigan (55%).
