New Quiz From Helps People Decide If They Should Move

 Many Americans say they want a change of scenery, but are they ready for a move?
Franklin, Tenn. — Nearly one in nine Americans changed residences between 2013 and 2014, according to recent data released by the U.S. Census Bureau. While the majority of these moves didn’t involve crossing state lines, or even changing cities, nearly 10 percent of all U.S. residents have expressed a desire to live somewhere else. So what’s keeping these Americans from longer moves?
The new quiz Should You Move to a New City aims to help people decide if they are ready for a move by focusing on that question. It asks people to assess their relationships, place fulfillment and personality in order to come to a conclusion on whether moving is the right decision. Do we really think your decision should be based on our quiz? Of course not. Consider it a fun way to approach the subject and perhaps a lighthearted way of introducing the topic to a family member or friend.
The quiz asks takers to consider their current climate, romantic relationships, job skills, financial situation and sense of adventure as they navigate through a series of 12 questions to determine if they are ready to move. After finding their results, it’s up to them to decide what the next step is. What we do know is that moving to a new city can be life changing, invigorating and lead people to a better place, both literally and figuratively.
