People don’t move as often as they used to

Moving isn’t as popular as it once was. I know that older people are less likely to move than younger people are and our population is aging. Younger people are not moving as often either mostly because not as many are moving because of jobs.

I’ll admit I haven’t moved in almost 30 years. I haven’t had a reason to move. Some of my friends have moved in the last few years. We usually move because of some life event like getting married, or divorced or having children, becoming empty nesters, retiring, the death of a spouse or old age.

According to the U.S. census bureau  moving is at a historic low.
