2013 Migration Patterns of United Van Lines' Customers
Each year, United Van Lines — a national moving and storage company — keeps track of where its customers are moving from and to, and publishes the results in an annual migration study. This year, they published their 37th annual study, and were nice enough to share the raw data with me.
