Movers by Race and Hispanic Origin

Non-Hispanic whites account for 63 percent of the U.S. population but only 54 percent of the nation's movers. Behind this relatively low figure is the fact that homeowners are less likely to move than renters, and non-Hispanic whites are more likely to own a home. Between 2010 and 2011, 36 million Americans moved and this is their distribution by race and Hispanic origin...

Asian: 6%
Black: 18%
Hispanic: 21%
Non-Hispanic white: 54%
