LANSING (WKZO) -- For the first time since 1996, there are almost as many people moving into Michigan as there are people departing the state.  According to a new study, last year there were nearly 56-hundred moves in and out of Michigan.

Forty-six-percent of those were into the state while 54-percent were headed elsewhere.  This compares to previous figures showing Michigan leading the nation for years in the number of moves out of the state.

Experts say the closer balance indicates positive news for an improving economy.
