The chart shows the percentage of people who have moved house either in the last 3 years, between 3 to 5 years or not within the last 5 years.

The chart illustrates the breakdown between people who have changed address or remained in the same house, with the numbers split between those who have moved within 5 years, within 3 years or not moved for at least 5 years.
Those in their twenties and thirties have less than a quarter of people living in the same home for more than 5 years and those who moved house three to 5 years back being the highest.
Those aged between 40 and 49 had the highest figure for having moved 3 to 5 years ago, with 55% of people compared to 31% that had moved more recently and only 14% who had not moved in the last 5 years. By the next age group, the percentage of people who had moved over 3 years ago and those who had not moved for at least 5 years was almost the same, with only 17% of people having moved more recently.
Overall, it can be seen that there are wide variations in the percentage of people who move during certain ages.
