Renter Mobility also at Record Low

Between March 2010 and March 2011, the percentage of renters who moved fell to an all-time low of 26.2 percent. Renters are now a larger share of movers than they have been at any time in the two decades in which the Census Bureau has been collecting mobility data by homeownership status. In 2010-11, renters accounted for 72 percent of the nation's movers--fully 25 million of the 35 million who moved.
