Despite the economic turmoil swirling in much of the country, Tennessee will likely continue attracting newcomers to the state, our research has found.

We analyzed nearly 500,000 requests for moving services in 2008 and found that 58% of all interstate move requests for Tennessee involved people who wanted to move to Tennessee from another state; 42 % involved people who wanted to leave Tennessee for another state.

 Three major Tennessee cities showed similar numbers over the two-year span of 2007 and 2008:

 Nashville: 56% of all interstate moves involved people moving to the city; 44% involved people moving out of the city.

 Knoxville: 53% of all interstate moves involved people moving to the city; 47% involved people moving out of the city.

 Chattanooga: 55% of all interstate moves involved people moving to the city; 45% involved people moving out of the city.

 The only city bucking that trend was Memphis: Of interstate moves, 62% were requests to move out of the city to another state; 38% were requests to move to the city.
