Maryland Listed as One of the “10 Least Popular States to Move to in 2022” According to Report

A recent report from moveBuddha, a relocation tech company, ranked the least popular states to move to in 2022. According to the article, “Roughly 13% of Americans moved each year before the pandemic. So, it makes sense that Americans have attacked COVID-19 as they’ve resolved so many other challenges: by hitting the road. Since the pandemic, 22% of Americans have moved in response to the virus or know someone who has.” Maryland came in as the 7th least popular state to move to in 2022.

moveBuddha uses proprietary data collected from 2020, 2021, and 2022 (Jan 1 through July 5th) to analyze moves trends. The data comes directly from the moveBuddha Moving Cost CalculatorIn-to-out ratio: “We rely primarily on the in-to-out ratio equation in our analysis to see which cities are earning more residents by moves in than losing them via moves out: [Number of queries for moves in] ÷ [Number of queries for moves out] = [in-to-out ratio].”
