South Dakota a top state for inbound migration

  • January 4, 2024

For those looking to make a change, moving to a different place can be the perfect solution. However, the state where you choose to relocate can really make a difference.

In South Dakota, we’re proud to consistently be one of the best states in the nation for business, careers, having a family, and more.

Another accolade has proven this to be true: in its 2023 National Movers Study, United Van Lines concluded that South Dakota was the 7th most popular state for inbound migration.

“We are continuing to see the trend that Americans are moving to more affordable, lower-density areas across the country, with many heading to Southern states,” United Van Lines Vice President of Corporate Communications Eily Cummings said. “Movers are also becoming more strategic with their planning, as relocation continues to be driven by factors such as the price of housing, regional climates, urban planning and job growth.”
