According to the U.S. Census Bureau, about 40 million Americans—one in nine people—move each year. While the majority of these movers are in their 20s, people of all ages can be found relocating around this time of year.
Moving is such a prevalent activity for Americans during spring that the entirety of May is dedicated to this trend.
