»Googling« has been a synonym for searching the internet in the German prescriptive Duden dictionary for some years now. For at least two thirds of Germans, the use of search engines has become an everyday occurrence. Without Google and Co. nothing can be planned, experienced or checked today. No text, no holiday, no job, no purchase for which it does not assist.
Every year, around 4.8 million households in Germany move. With an average household size of 1.75 persons, this corresponds to more than 8.4 million people with a new address. And the trend is increasing; because with the course of globalisation, the labour market demands more flexibility and mobility from all of us. In line with this social change, current studies predict a steady increase in relocations in Germany.
