Every January, moving truck rental company U-Haul releases data on where Americans moved in the previous year. According to data released by the company yesterday, a good number of people moved to the St. Louis area in 2022.

St. Louis came in at number 11 on U-Haul List of Growing Cities for 2022. It was one of the few cities in the Midwest to make the list.

The 11th place finish was a huge improvement from last year, when St. Louis didn’t crack the top 25.

Topping the list for 2022 was Ocala, Florida, a town halfway between Orlando and Gainesville. Sacramento was number two. Number three was Madison, Wisconsin, which along with St. Louis, West Chester, Ohio (#20) and Noblesville, Indiana (#23) were the only Midwestern cities to make the cut.

U-Haul claims its data is based on more than 2 million one-way U-Haul rentals. Although it does not give a full picture of a region’s population growth, it does shed light on migration trends over the past year.
