Americans are shaking off the lockdown effects of the Great Recession and are beginning to move again, according to U.S. Census Data analyzed by USA Today. More Americans moved last year than they have in five years with the 16.9 million who moved between counties in 2012 representing 5 percent more than moved in 2010, Census data show.

The sunny South — Florida, Arizona and Nevada — has been a popular destination in the latest migration trends, demographer Kenneth Johnson of the University of New Hampshire told USA Today.
