    “It is not surprising therefore that the number of people who moved for a* job dropped to 3.4 million in 2009-2010 compared with 4.6 million in* 2006-2007, according to the Census.

    *

    The percentage of people who moved for any reason in the last year is the* lowest it has been since the U.S. Census Bureau began tracking the* number in 1948. Only 11.6 percent changed residences between 2010 and* 2011, according to data released last Tuesday by the Census.”
