INDIANAPOLIS - Census figures show Indiana residents haven't been using moving trucks much lately.

A report from the U.S. Census Bureau says nearly 98 percent of Indiana residents stayed in the state from 2009 to 2010.

More than 5.4 million of the state's 6.4 million residents even stayed in the same home. Indiana University demographer Matt Kinghorn says mobility rates have been going down since the 1970s and 1980s with aging baby boomers and greater homeownership.

He tells The Indianapolis Star that the recession likely played a major role in people not moving in recent years. The Census reports that from 2009 to 2010, Indiana gained about 61,000 residents from Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky, while losing about 51,000 residents to those states.
