Long-distance moves â€” from one city to another, out of state, across the country â€” are often moves made for jobs. Local moves, on the other hand, tend to be more about housing. We move from one address to another within the same city or county to get a bigger home, a better home, a home in a different neighborhood or school zone. Or we move for reasons like eviction or rising rent.
Whether we’re pulled by better options or pushed out by bad ones, local moves say something a little different about our lives than do long-distance ones. For this reason, it’s particularly noteworthy in new Census data that Americans over the last year made such moves â€” within the same county â€” at the lowest rate since the government began recording this data in 1948.
