When moving, Americans were more likely to leave the county in 2014 than in 2005

When Americans move to another household they are more likely to move outside of the county than they were 10 years ago, Tim Henderson reports for Stateline. "Fewer people moved to new residences within the county in which they lived in 2014 than in 2005. However, more people moved longer distances and from abroad. Thirty-one states saw declines in the number of people moving within county boundaries, while 43 states registered more people moving across county boundaries and from other states. Thirty-seven states saw more people moving in from abroad." (To view an interactive version, click here)
