IRS Internal Migration Data and Housing Bubble
Earlier this week, I suggested a potential business application of IRSâs internal migration data for a moving and relocation company.
Folks at Neilsen Claritas just found a far more interesting correlation which should have driven a lot of business decisions. They note:

While such retrospective analysis is interesting for reports and blogs, it is not particularly useful for businesses. Maybe as means to generate interesting hypothesis for future. It would have been useful had the chart been available to the strategic planning or risk group of businesses signing up people…
