The Pew Charitable Trusts, a leader in public policy analysis, recently released the results of their analysis on Philadelphia moving trends from 2011 to 2013.

simonik allied moving The full report—titled “A Portrait of Philadelphia Migration”—has a few really fascinating takeaways about exactly who is moving around, into, and out of the City of Brotherly Love.

Check out these interesting facts:

Philadelphia Local Moves

The Pew report found that in 2013, around half of all people who moved into Philadelphia came from local regions within Pennsylvania. Similarly, around half of all people who left the city stayed local. It also found that most people who moved into or within Philadelphia, around 23%, chose to move into the centermost part of the city.

Philadelphia Interstate Moves

For those Philly residents who made interstate moves, the report found that the most common city of origin and destination was—perhaps unsurprisingly—New York City. In fact, New York state and New Jersey were the two most popular places for both Philly newcomers and migrants.

Whether you’re following the crowd to the Big Apple or moving down to Ocean City, Simonik Allied offers full-service interstate moving services for a stress-free relocation between any state. Our Philadelphia interstate movers are here and ready—don’t hesitate to give us a call!

Philadelphia Long-Distance Moves

Excluding those two most popular states of New York and New Jersey, the greatest number of migrants who left Pennsylvania covered pretty great distances, going all the way to Florida, Texas, and California. Similarly, the greatest number of people newly arriving in Philadelphia—again, excluding those from New York and New Jersey—came from Florida, Delaware, and California.

Long-distance moves can be especially challenging. Whether you’re coming from Nebraska to Pennsylvania or leaving Philly for Austin, our team of Philadelphia movers has the professional network through Allied Van Lines to give you a seamless, smooth transition.
