The Average Person Moves 11.7 Times Througout Their Life

According to a study conducted by the United States Census Bureau, the average person will move their household 11.7 times in their lifetime. Although the Census Bureau did not ask people that question directly, the study's results were based on two basic pieces of data; which age groups are most likely to move in a given year, and the overall structure of the population of the United Sates.

This was last calculated by the Census Bureau in 2007 when the study revealed these results. An independent study using the same data performed in 2014, and using the data compiled through 2013 produced a slightly lower number of 11.3 moves in the average lifetime.

When the time comes for your family to make a complete household move, choose the professionals at Pack On The Go for all of your moving needs, from packing all of your things to transporting your furniture and belongings.

28 Million Americans Move Every Year

If you were one of the 28 million Americans who moved their family between 2012 and 2013, and you didn't enlist the services of Pack On The Go, you probably spent more on your move than you needed to. Recent studies have also revealed that the wealthier segments of the population are more likely to stay put; while seven percent of Americans earning $100,000 per year or more made a household move, Thirteen percent of households earning between $5,000 and $25,000 per year made such a move.

While it may seem that moving is a good thing, in many cases that simply is not true. The Census Bureau's studies showed that fifteen percent of movers did so in search of a better home, eight percent were seeking cheaper living conditions, and about two percent were forced to move by way of foreclosure or eviction.
