We have helped over a thousand families move across the border

Illinois loses more people to Indiana than it loses to any other surrounding state. And migration data from recent years indicate that the Illinois-to-Indiana out-migration flow is rapidly becoming a flood.  Illinois lost over 15,000 residents, on net, to Indiana in 2018 alone, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. That’s an average of 41 Illinois residents that became Indiana residents each day in 2018.

The historic population lost (IL.) to Indiana in 2018 is just the most recent reported year of loss in the Prairie State’s decadelong stream of Indiana-bound migration. In total, the Land of Lincoln lost, on net, over 119,000 residents to Indiana from 2009 through 2018. That’s comparable to moving the entire population of Kankakee and Edwards counties into Hoosier territory over the course of a decade.

Business & Office Moves — From Illinois to Indiana Movers

Indiana is friendlier to industrial employers than Illinois, which attracts jobs and people to the Hoosier State. For instance, workers’ compensation is a major expense for manufacturers. However, Indiana has the second-least-expensive workers’ compensation system in the nation, Illinois’ system is among the top 10 most expensive nationally, and takes the lead as the most expensive regionally. Illinois’ out-of-step workers’ compensation system makes the state uncompetitive with neighbors like Indiana, particularly in regard to attracting and retaining blue-collar manufacturing jobs.

Indiana’s lower tax burden and friendlier business environment have also borne positive results for Hoosiers. In fact, Indiana’s personal income has grown twice as fast as Illinois’ since the beginning of the Great Recession, indicating better access to jobs and wage increases.
