The final reports of the 1960 Population Census are arranged in three volumes and a joint Population-Housing series of census tract reports. Volume II (Series PC(2) reports) are Subject Reports. Each report concentrates on a particular subject. Detailed information and cross-relationships are generally provided on a national and regional level. In a few reports, data for States or standard metropolitan statistical areas are also shown.
This report, designated as PC(2)-2B, presents statistics on population mobility in the period 1955 to 1960 for persons 5 years old and over, for States and State economic areas. The data include information on the demographic, social, and economic characteristics of the population classified by mobility status.
Tables 1 to 11 present statistics on mobility status by social and economic characteristics, with a cross-classification by age, for the U.S. The remaining tables (12 to 38) present data for regions, divisions, States, and State economic areas. Except for tables 3 to 11, which are based on the 5-percent sample, the statistics for this report are drawn from the 25-percent sample of the 1960 Census.

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
