Moving vans are on the roll and many continue to head to Oregon, according to a migration study released by Atlas Van Lines.


The moving company found that Oregon continues to be a top relocation spot, ranking second in inbound moves, percentage-wise.


That's no surprise to the people already living here. After topping 4 million peoplefor the first time in 2015, new residents have been arriving at a rate not seen since the 1990s.


Last month, the Census Bureau reported that Oregon had grown by 1.71 percent in the past year, making it the sixth-fastest-growing state by percentage. Its 69,000 new residents also make it the ninth-fastest-growing state in absolute numbers.


Most of the state's population growth came from migration, which tends to follow the health of the economy. Oregon's job market has been growing faster than the nation overall.
