As the pandemic accelerated a nationwide trend of residents fleeing larger metro areas in search of affordability and a better quality of life, many chose to relocate to Idaho in 2020, according to a recent study by a national moving company.

United Van Lines named Idaho the top moving destination in 2020 in its National Movers Study, which tracks and ranks inbound and outbound relocation data.

Idaho had the greatest percentage — 70% — of in-migration nationwide last year, followed by South Carolina, Oregon, South Dakota and Arizona.
