Editor’s note: Stacker compiled a list of where people in Greenville are moving to the most using data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Metros are ranked by the estimated number of people who moved to the metro from Greenville between 2014 and 2018. Ties were broken by gross migration.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Why would you ever want to leave Greenville?

G-Vegas. The Emerald City. Home to East Carolina University, Vidant Medical, Physicians East and so much more.

Greenville has more than doubled in population from 1980 to 2010. However, there are those who choose to leave for reasons related to work, graduation from ECU or Pitt Community College and other reasons.

Stacker, a company known for its data analysis, compiled this list that shows us where our residents are moving to once they leave. Luckily, several places they are moving to are still close to Greenville (which means you can still watch WNCT-TV). For those who are further away, there’s always our website, WNCT.com, and our new mobile app.
