Just 13% of the U.S. population changed addresses between 2006 and 2007, the lowest share of Americans to move since the Census Bureau began keeping records on mobility after World War II.

A new survey by the Pew Research Center-conducted to analyze the trend-divides America into a nation of “movers” and “stayers.” According to the study released Wednesday, six-in-10 Americans have moved to a new community at least once in their lives, but more than a third of Americans still live in their hometowns, and 57% of Americans have never lived outside their home state.
