North Carolina is one of the best states in the U.S. Many people choose to live here, making it the ninth most populous state at 10.5 million residents. In fact, since 2010, the population growth of the state has outperformed that of the nation.
The state is known as a “sticky state,” meaning that most born here, stay here and at the same time, many are moving from another state. 49% of North Carolinians are born outside of the state. The top five states that those relocating come from are Florida, Virginia, South Carolina, New York, and California in descending order. 51% of North Carolinians were born in the state and chose to stay there. 3 out of every 4 residents born in North Carolina stay in the state.
What makes North Carolina so attractive? The state has shrunk to a low-tax state over the last 10 years. There are 3 booming metropolitan areas with steady growth every year. Additionally, the landscape is incredible. Along the east coast sits beaches bordering the Atlantic Ocean. The west coast holds many mountains holding the perfect landscape for adventurers.
