Missouri was recently listed as the U-Haul No. 1 Growth State in the Midwest, according to U-Haul data analyzing U.S. migration trends for 2018. Additionally, the Show-Me state ranked number 12 in the U.S for growth, up 18 spots from 2017.
U-Haul Growth States are calculated by the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks entering a state versus leaving that state during a calendar year. Migration trends data is compiled from more than 2 million one-way U-Haul truck sharing transactions that occur annually.
U-Haul growth data is an effective gauge of how well states and cities are attracting and maintaining residents. U-Haul is the authority on migration trends thanks to its expansive network that blankets all 50 states and 10 Canadian provinces with more than 21,000 U-Haul truck and trailer sharing locations providing a comprehensive overview of where people are moving like no one else in the industry.
