A new report by U-Haul says Minnesota ranked 35th out of 50 states in terms of growth in 2017, a steep decline from the past two years.
According to U-Haul data that analyzed last year’s migration trends in the U.S., year-over-year arrivals of one-way U-Haul truck rentals dropped by 2-percent while departures increased by 2-percent from Minnesota’s 2016 numbers.
Hermantown, Mankato and Alexandria were the leading cities in Minnesota for more arrivals than departures.
Minnesota ranked number three on the list in terms of growth in 2016 and ranked twelfth in 2015.
Growth States were calculated by using migration trend data that was compiled from more than 1.7 million annual one-way U-Haul truck rental transactions.
Texas was ranked the first overall Growth State for the second year in a row. Florida, Arkansas, South Carolina and Tennessee rounded out the top five.
