Georgia, Delaware Rank As Top 2006 Growth States By U-Haul


UU-Haul, celebrating more than 60 years of serving the do-it-yourself household moving industry, today released results of the U-Haul National Migration Trend Report, reflecting the nation’s top growth states for families who moved during 2006. The report, 2006 Top 10 U.S. Growth States Report, indicates that for states with more than 20,000 families moving, Georgia had the highest percentage of growth, with 5.52 percent more families moving into the state than out. For states with 5,000 - 20,000 families moving, Delaware had the highest percentage of growth, with 5.81 percent.

“The average American moves 11 times in a lifetime,” explained U-Haul President John “J.T.” Taylor, “and doing it yourself is the most economical way to move. Our consumers rely on U-Haul to provide affordable services. Since 1945, U-Haul has been serving the do-it-yourself mover and we are proud to be able to offer these services to families across North America.”

The report, reflective of growth patterns of the United States during 2006, was compiled based on nationwide trends in states with more than 5,000 families moving in or out of the area. Growth was then determined by calculating the percentage of inbound moves vs. outbound moves for each state.

The 2006 Top 10 U.S. Growth States Report was compiled from over 1.62 million U-Haul transactions occurring between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2006.
