Trends in Small Furniture and Freighting Moves

Posted on Mon, Mar 15, 2010

As we continue to freight and move small amounts of furniture throughout the country. Pack n sends experience mirrors the trend noted by Edward Glaeser in his New York Times article  on  February 16, 2010. We are seeing more college students move back home after graduation, and  our younger customer moving back at least temporarily with their families.

According to Glaeser, the Current Population Survey, only  four hundred thousand new house hold formed from March 2008 and March 2009.   While there were about a million new families, the number of non family households dropped by  three hundred thousand.

This recession has been particularly hard on younger workers.  The number of jobs held by 20- to 24-year-olds declined four point five per cent in 2009, while the number of jobs held by people over the age of 25 dropped 1.8 percent.   Staying at home is an understandable response from younger workers to the labor market woes.   The rate of household formation also fell during the 1982 recession and the Great Depression.
