This article analyses the decline in the migration rates in the United States over the thirty last years and shows that there is a rise in dual-worker couples, increased household indebtedness, and the widespread rise of information and communication technologies. The first two are probably linked, as households have responded to decreasing real income over the last quarter-century through greater female labor force participation and maintaining current levels of consumption by borrowing ever more heavily from the equity in their homes. It concludes that he migration decline is surely linked to the broader macroeconomic shifts that gave rise to it and presumes that ICTs are providing new forms of mobility that are substituting for migration
