Alabama is ranked what?????

South Carolina is the top destination when adjusted for population size.

LendingTree created a Moving Popularity Score Index* to analyze destination states adjusted by population. South Carolina scored highest, as mortgage loan requests were 52% greater than suggested by its share of the national population. Other popular states by this metric are Florida, Delaware, Georgia and North Carolina, revealing a Southern tilt in the preferences of out-of-state homebuyers. At the other end of the spectrum, homebuyers are least attracted to South Dakota, which received just 64% of the loan requests its population would suggest. Hawaii, Minnesota, California and New York complete the bottom five.

SD 64          From Tim: Facts to consider? Lending Tree based this ranking only on people who inquired about a home loan from them, which may tilt the data a bit. Are there really many more people who want to move to Alabama than Hawaii,  New York or California? And what does "adjusted for population" mean, anyway?????????

Seems like a very flawed study. Remember the three kinds of lies:

1. Lies
2. Damn lies
3. Statistics.
