Percent of Households That Have Moved in the Last 5 Years

Time Range: 2006-2010       Resolution: Census Block Group

The year householder moved into unit measures the percent of housing units occupied by householders who moved into their unit within the last five years out of all occupied housing units in the area.


The lack of housing that the lowest income households can afford contributes to housing instability resulting in frequent moves and, for some families, periods of homelessness. Low-income families have higher rates of residential mobility than do middle- and upper-income families, and moves by low-income families are less likely to be for positive reasons than are moves by more prosperous families.

Data is from the U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey (ACS) 2006-2010 5-year detailed tables. This measure uses table B25038 (Tenure By Year Householder Moved Into Unit Universe: Occupied housing units) at the census block group (150) summary level. Forumula: (B25038003 + B25038010) / B25038001
