Meet The Growing Number Of Americans Who Want To Move Abroad

A growing number of Americans is thinking about turning expat, according to a survey by America Wave and Zogby International.

The share of Americans planning to relocate increased to 2.5 percent from 0.8 percent in 2009. If this number describes the entire population, that means around 6 million Americans are planning on leaving the country.
America Wave’s Bob Adams (a Business Insider contributor) found that single people, political conservatives and men were more likely to be in this group.

A shocking 40% of young people said they were thinking about relocating, though few in this group had concrete plans to do so.

Reasons to leave America may include better weather and a better jobs market. Click here to see the charts from survey.
