More people are moving out of New Jersey than are moving in. The same is true for Illinois and New York. Those three states top the "outbound" list compiled by United Van Lines, the big St. Louis-based moving company that has put together an annual survey of where Americans are moving for the last 37 years.
The company analyzed a total of 125,000 moves across the 48 continental states and the District of Columbia in 2013 and came up with a picture of migration patterns across the U.S.
According to Professor Michael Stoll, chair of the Department of Public Policy at the University of California Los Angeles and a consultant to United Van Lines who studies American migration, the moves reflect long-term shifts in the U.S. economy and the hit to employment in many states resulting from the slow recovery.
Of the top nine states where more people moved out than moved in, four are in the Northeast: In addition to New Jersey and New York, Connecticut (No. 5) and Massachusetts (No. 8) make the list. The list also reflects Americans desire to leave the frigid states in the north for warmer climes. "Over the last 20-30 years there has been a general shift of the population from the Midwest and Northeast to the South and West, which we think of as a move from the frost belt to the sun belt," Stoll says.

Liberals mess up a state then move to one the conservatives have kept right - then try to change it to the way “we did it back home.”
I noted that they include the idea of moving from colder climate to warmer climate as one of the factors. But I thought Man Made Global Warming/Climate Change would alleviate this factor by now.
There was a severe shortage of trucks in North Dakota for people wanting to move out.
Funny how much things have changed since then . . .
They also bring annoying accents and off-putting, haughty attitudes.
Saw a funny acronym yesterday for Cary, NC:
‘Containment Area for Relocated Yankees’
Allied Van Lines = people with houses full of stuff. They don’t catch the guys coming or going with their possessions in the back seats of their cars. More of that sort may be arriving than leaving.
That is why you are seeing some states like Michigan, Wisconsin showing signs of Red and states like Virginia, North Carolina and others showing signs of Blue. People moving from one state to another change the political landscape. I think the reason people move from the North to the South is weather more than taxes. The Northern states tend to have older people and they end up wanting to retire down south.
Notice how they are the top taxed and most Anti-Gun states. I’m sure Mass, CA and CT aren’t far behind. We got out of NJ a few years ago into PA. It’s not Texas, but it’s light years better than NJ!
That's not a mystery. It's all the Liberals who moved to those states, couldn't understand why the welcome wagon wasn't rolled out for them, and moved back as soon as they could. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Thanks for posting this. My response is maybe a bit off topic, but I’m also interested in where people are GOING TO, and why.
I have maybe ten years to choose my retirement destination. I’m leaving Michigan, not for political reasons (we’re quite red right now), but I want warmer, more conservative, a longer biking season, etc. I have one FReeper suggestion of St. George, Utah and welcome others. I’m working on a criteria list but it’s not done yet.
That’s been the acronym in Cary since before I left there in the early 90s. I grew up in that area.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
We have all these NJ nitwits moving to Wilmington NC screwing up the city, county and state.
The only problem is that wherever they go they are still arrogant, obnoxious, hypocritical yankees, and NO we don't give a damn about how you did it up north.
That's their MO. Move on to screw up the rest.
Left Jersey in 1984 for Kentucky. Turned out to be one of my better decisions, but...
Chose to move to Washington in 1989 and don’t want to stay there after I retire.
When I lived in Flint, Mich. there was a LONG waiting list at Ryder for people who wanted trucks and trailers to move out.
And the outbound rate was about three or four times the inbound.
