Report: CT a top destination for relocating remote workers

Contributed Connecticut posted the sixth-highest net gain of remote workers who relocated in 2022.

Connecticut was a top 10 destination for remote workers who relocated in 2022, according to a new study.

Yardi Kube, a coworking management platform, released the results of its study in February in a report titled, “Remote Workers Leading the Migration Across State Lines.”

The study, which is based on data from IPUMS USA and analyzes U.S. Census data, ranked the top 10 states based on their net gain of remote workers who relocated in 2022. Connecticut ranked sixth, with 20,506 remote workers moving into the state, while 10,653 moved out, for a net gain of 9,853 remote workers.

Florida was No. 1, with a net gain of 43,937 remote workers, followed by Texas (31,060), North Carolina (16, 856), Georgia (14,641) and Arizona (12,792). 

The report also looked at the migration of on-site workers — those who work primarily in office — and Connecticut ranked a surprising third on that list, with a net gain of 32,619 on-site workers. Texas ranked first with a net gain of 66,164 workers, while Florida was second with a net gain of 51,369.

Georgia (28,129) and South Carolina (24,917) rounded out the top five.

The study noted that the majority of remote workers moving to Florida came from New York, while most moving to Texas relocated from California. The study did not indicate where a majority of the remote workers who migrated to Connecticut had moved from.

It cited a similar pattern for migrating on-site workers, with roughly a majority going to Florida from New York and from California to Texas.

Madeline Fagaras, a spokesperson for Yardi Kube, said in an email that Connecticut did experience a “substantial migration from high-cost states.”

“The demographic shift brought about by this trend is reshaping local economies and communities,” Fagaras said, “positioning Connecticut as a vibrant hub for business and innovation and making it one of the top destinations for Millennials.” 

The study found that millennials were “the most eager generational group to embrace relocation,” with that generation making up 54% of the workers who relocated within the same state and 51% of those who moved out of state.

“Boomers and the Silent Generation are least likely to move, with these two age groups together representing less than 10% of the moving population,” the study found.
