Survey reveals where people moved to and from in 2010

Washington, D.C. saw its population grow in 2010, according to survey.

Washington, D.C. saw its population grow in 2010, according to survey.

The nation's capital is a popular place to move to yet again, according to a nationwide survey determining where people moved in 2010.

The Atlas Van Lines Migration Patterns study, a survey conducted every year since 1993, found movers considered Washington, D.C. to be a prime relocation destination for a fifth year in a row.

Other popular places to move to, according to the survey, include New Hampshire, Maryland, Alaska, and Kentucky.

Meanwhile, the state that saw the most people leaving in 2010 was Ohio, the eighth year in a row that more people left the Buckeye State. The Midwest area in general saw population declines.

"It is a great bellwether for the economic situation of the country," said Jack Griffin, president and COO of Atlas World Group. "The results are especially promising this year, as the number of moves has increased, with monthly numbers higher than last year's."

The survey didn't ask why people left or moved to various parts of the country, but a Weichert Realtors survey released earlier this month found most people moved to take advantage of favorable financing rates.
