Jobs seem to be the No. 1 reason bringing people to or taking them away from North Dakota in the past year, a study found.
Moving company United Van Lines released its national movers study the first week of January. “A lot of people are moving out of or into North Dakota to be closer to their family or for a new job. The majority of reasons people nationwide move is for a job,” said Eily Cummings, spokeswoman for United Van Lines.
Of the people who were moving in North Dakota, more than half moved into the state for a job and 23 percent moved out for a job. United Van Lines found one out of every two people who moved in the past year nationwide moved for a new job or company transfer.
