Kansas City ranks ninth among the top U.S. cities to move to, according to U-Haul International Inc’s annual survey. As stated by the Kansas City Business Journal, “The 2009 U-Haul National Migration Trend Report, which ranks the top 50 U.S. destination cities, reflects nationwide statistics from more than 1 million U-Haul truck transactions last year. Houston ranked first, with Las Vegas second and Chicago third.” U-Haul’s survey is based on relocation of their movers traveling further than 50 miles from their place of origin. The city’s population is not calculated into the survey.

According to MSN Money using U-Haul’s survey results can help people discover what regions people are moving to and what regions people are leaving. People are moving where there are job opportunities, so if you’re in the market for a new job in a new city check out U-Haul’s survey and see where your city falls on the rankings. The survey is also indicative of a cities growth over the past year, larger cities mean bigger opportunities. Here is a list of the top 10 cities on Haul’s list.
