Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to determine which family, dwelling, and geographic characteristics affect household mobility in America. The information for this analysis was collected from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics. The results suggest that household and dwelling attributes are the strongest predictors of mobility incidence. Further, findings indicate that county-level and state-level measures are less reliable in predicting whether a household will move. While these findings are consistent across subgroups, there is evidence to support the claim that married and non-married household heads weigh relative mobility determinants differently.
