Data Notes

I have moved a lot and the reasons for moving are very interesting to me so I created this visualization to get a better idea of why people move. I got this data from a tabulation done by the U.S. Census Bureau using Current Population Survey data. Once I had the data in a usable form I used Tableau to create the visualization.
