Since 1790 the U.S. census has been tracking the mean center of the U.S. population. According to this infographic, titled How Moving Companies are Changing the U.S. Landscape, at first count it was 23 miles east of Baltimore, but over the years it has moved steadily west, and more recently south.  I’m certain I would have never guessed the current population center (as of the 2010 census).  Plato, Missouri — an incorporated village in Texas County, Missouri with a population of only around 2,000. 

The infographic also depicts the “30 Best Cities for Starting Over,” the “Top 10 cities in the U.S. by Population,” and “The Most Common State-to-State Moves.”  It’s definitely worth checking out.
