A pandemic migration has been underway, at least for young adults.
That’s according to a Bankrate.com survey that found 31% of people in that age cohort relocated either permanently or for an extended period of time during the Covid pandemic. That’s compared with 16% of adults overall.
The main reason people relocated was to be closer to friends and family, which was cited by 31% of respondents. That was followed by more affordable living, with 27%, or relocating for a job, 21%.
Others were motivated by opportunities for more space, 18%; different climates, 17%; or the ability to work from anywhere, 17%.
