Greenville has been a fast-growing city for many years.

From East Carolina University to Vidant Health and many other reasons, the Emerald City has been booming with new people moving in from all over the country. However, sometimes those same people have to move away from our fair city.

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.
