The Study

"Moving Trends: An Exploration" - the name itself brings the exact picture of the dynamism of the moving industry to the fore. The four encompassing sections – "Shipments Picked Up", "Places People Are Moving Out", "Places People Are Moving In" and "Buzz @ Places" are well organized and detailed enough to capture the latest trends and variations of the moving industry starting from 2005 till the 2nd Quarter of 2010.

In every segment, charts, diagrams, tables and bars are used to present the changing scenario of the Local, Long Distance, Auto and International Moves along with the variation of the move size encompassing several states and cities. The comparative study that is presented in "Moving Trends: An Exploration" is a fine analysis of what relocation trends used to be and how it has been changing over the years.

The need for moving being recognized; now it calls for an understanding of the reasons. So why people move? A search; which may be for a new job, a better community, a better life, but always the urge for a better living primarily have prompted people to move. The details below talk about the reasons behind moves elaborately.

Moving is an outcome of a number of entangled reasons expanding over several aspects of our socio-economic existence. In a study by the Population Division of the U.S. Census Bureau, titled as "Why People Move: Exploring the March 2000 Current Population Survey" (Click Here) several reasons have been explained. The study shows that people are less likely to move after retirements while the percentage of move is high among youngsters and middle aged people.

Education has always played a major role in moving. While students may move to get enrolled in high schools, colleges and other institutions, highly educated people on the other hand relocate for better jobs and opportunities. This is mostly linked with the economic condition of a family which can support the higher education of a student. Again, it is this economic condition that plays havoc forcing people to relocate for a better life or to a less expensive place to have a good grip on the limited fund.

This study also reveals many other interesting facades of moving. It shows, the poor are more likely to relocate for family reasons and not for work reasons while the better-offs do just the opposite. Extending this a bit, it is shown that unemployed people are less likely to relocate than the employed ones. Again, it’s been also found out that more of the short distance moves are related to family or housing reasons while longer moves are mostly due to professional reasons.

The Pie Chart below is a pictorial representation of the percentage of moves since 2005. The projection of data is based on a yearly basis and classified into four major kinds of moves i.e., Local, Long Distance, Auto and International Moves. The purpose of the study is to equip the customers with a detail understanding of the changing trends in the moving industry over the years.
