A study from Atlas Van Lines says 50% more people moved out of Indiana in 2011 than moved in.

The annual report from Evansville-based Atlas Van Lines shows more than 1,200 people moved into Indiana in 2011 and more than 1,800 moved out.   Atlas Van Lines Senior Marketing Specialist Kerri Hart says the Midwest in general is seeing more people move out. She says Ohio has the highest percentage of outbound movers at 60%.

No Midwestern states were considered inbound states — those with more people moving in. Only Michigan, Iowa and South Dakota were listed as “balanced” states.

It‘s the 10th year in a row Indiana had more outbound movers than inbound. The worst year in that span was 2005 when almost 2,300 people moved out of the state.   Washington, D.C. had the highest percentage of inbound moves with 69%. It‘s the sixth consecutive year for the nation‘s capitol to be tops in the poll.
