(ATLANTA BUSINESS CHRONICLE) -- U-Haul International, Inc. ranks Atlanta No. 26 on its annual U-Haul National Migration Trend Report released Friday that measures the nation's top growth areas for families that moved during the past year.
Pittsburg takes the top spot with the highest percentage of growth, U-Haul said.
"The report, reflective of growth patterns in the United States during 2012, was complied based on nationwide trends in cities of all sizes and reflects communities with more than 5,000 families moving in or out of the area," said John "J.T." Taylor, president, U-Haul International, Inc.
"Growth cities were then determined by calculating the percentage of inbound moves vs. outbound moves for each area," Taylor added.
The U-Haul 2012 Top U.S. Growth Cities Report was compiled from more than 1.6 million U-Haul one-way truck transactions, the company said.
