Corridor Business Journal: Iowa rose 11 spots in 2019 to become "the No. 30 Growth State in America," according to the latest U-Haul data analyzing U.S. migration trends. Iowa ranked No. 41 on the annual list a year ago, registering as a slight net-gain state for procuring U-Haul truck customers. It was a "convincing growth" state before 2018, ranking No. 12 in 2017 and No. 13 in 2016. Florida leapfrogged Texas as the top growth state for 2019, ending the Lone Star State’s three-year run atop the rankings. Florida rose one spot after being No. 2 for growth the previous three years. Illinois and California led the way in out-migration with the largest net losses of moving trucks crossing their borders.
