Census Tract Churn: Revealing Neighborhood Turnover Trends in the United States

THURSDAY, MAY 18, 2023

Barely 0.2 percent of the 85,396 U.S. neighborhoods reporting that no one moved in 2021, according to a Social Explorer analysis of 2017-21 American Community Survey data. Nationwide, only 13.5 percent of residents older than 1 said they moved between 2020 and 2021. But some neighborhoods, which are defined as Census tracts by the federal government, reported remarkable turnover.

Only 5.4 percent of 1,049 people in a Webb County, Texas, Census tract reported they lived in the same place in 2021 that they occupied during the previous year. It was trailed by a Montgomery County, Ohio, Census tract (7.7 percent) and a neighborhood in San Luis Obispo (7.9 percent).
