The people in the United States are a people on the move.During the short period of time from March 1964 to March 1965, nearly 38 million of a total of 188 million people moved from one house to another.1 The migration of individuals and families is essential to the proper functioning of the economy and moving is a necessary part of any migration. However, moving does not always involve migration in the usual sense of the term, although all migration does involve moving. Since migration is important to the economic progress of the economy and moving is a necessary part of migration, a study of the decision-making process relative to moving should be of value in the understanding of migration. The further understanding of migration should be of value in increasing the economic progress of the society.
