Greater Milwaukee, Wisconsin Both Ranked No. 13 in Top Cities, States for Net Migration

Milwaukee was recently included in U-Haul’s “growth cities” list of the top 25 cities in the U.S. in terms of net migration for do-it-yourself movers. The Cream City, including Racine County and other surrounding communities, ranked No. 13 on the list.

Growth cities are calculated by the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks entering a city versus leaving that city in a calendar year. The company says its migration trends data is compiled from more than 2 million annual U-Haul truck customer transactions. Neighboring cities in certain markets are packaged together for U-Haul migration purposes, the company says.

The Racine Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) is part of the Milwaukee-Racine-Waukesha Combined Statistical Area (CSA), which the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OBM) identifies as demonstrating economic and social linkage.
