Raleigh Ranked The Fasted Growing City In The US
According to U-Haul Raleigh-Durham is the fastest-growing metro area in the US.
U-haul says, "The Raleigh-Durham corridor registers as the top Growth City in America last year, according to U-Haul data analyzing U.S. migration trends for 2019 in a recent online article.
How did they calculate and support their research? "U-Haul Growth Cities are calculated by the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks entering a state versus leaving that state during a calendar year. Migration trends data is compiled from more than 2 million one-way U-Haul truck-sharing transactions that occur annually. Arrivals of one-way U-Haul trucks in the Raleigh-Durham market were up more than 3% while departures dropped more than 2% compared to the market’s 2018 numbers. Durham locations alone saw a 7% spike in arrivals. Arrivals accounted for nearly 51.4% of all one-way U-Haul traffic in the Raleigh-Durham area. We have tons of businesses coming here, bringing new residents in U-Haul trucks,” Smith added. “Raleigh-Durham is rivaling Austin (Texas) for attracting tech businesses and young professionals."
