WASHINGTON (AP) -- Fewer Americans are looking for a new address than they were a decade ago.New data from the Census Bureau show that more than 1 in 10 Americans moved between 2012 and 2013 because of job-, family- or housing-related reasons.More than 35 million Americans changed residences, meaning that 11.7 percent of people had a new address during that time period.That's a drop from 1999, the last time the Census Bureau checked on Americans' moving status. More than 42 million people found a new home between 1998 and 1999, a rate of 15.9 percent.In both surveys, more Americans said they moved for housing reasons, like wanting a "new or better" home or apartment.Copyright 2014 Associated Press.
