Mayor Rahm Emanuel today released the following statement on the annual U-Haul migration trends report, which ranked Chicago #2 nationally for people moving in to the city. The study ranks cities according to the total number of arriving one-way U-Haul truck rentals to a city in the past calendar year.
“This report is further evidence of the vibrancy and vitality of Chicago, a global city where people from across the country and around the world are coming to live, work and pursue their dreams. For each of the last four years, more companies have moved to Chicago than to any other American city and more investors from around the world have invested in Chicago than in any other American city. Chicago’s position as the number two destination city in the U.S. is no surprise and another clear sign of the strength of neighborhoods across Chicago.”
