Houston and Chicago were recently named the 7th and 10th top moving destinations for 2015 by a Penske Truck Rental Report. This would appear to be good news for both metros; however, the ranking is somewhat deceiving and doesn’t speak to the economical situations in either metro.
- The majority of households moving to Chicago are non-family households.
- Stats from moving companies are not accurate population growth indicators.
- In the past five years, 45 percent of those moving to Houston were families.
