More Ohio movers headed elsewhere, 2021 data says
It's inconceivable to us that anybody would want to leave the Buckeye State, but apparently not everybody here agrees.
What's happening: Ohio was the ninth-most departed state among movers who hired United Van Lines in 2021, per the moving company's data.
By the numbers: 56% of the company's nearly 6,400 Ohio shipments headed outbound.
Of note: The company notes that nine of the 10 "outbound" states are considered densely populated, so our 5-degree winter days aren't solely to blame.
The intrigue: Us Buckeyes have strong family bonds. Among Ohio's inbound movers, 44% of 829 people surveyed by United Van Lines said they did so to be closer to family.
- That percentage places Ohio sixth among states logging that response.
