More people moved out of this state than any other in the US


Looks like a lot of people are moving out of New Jersey. 

According to a new study by United Van Lines, more people moved out of New Jersey in 2018 than any other state. 

New Jersey came in first on the list of “most moved from” states, followed by Illinois, Connecticut, then New York, according to the 42nd annual National Movers Study, which tracks customers’ state-to-state moving patterns. 

Four Western states rounded out the top 5 “moved to”  list — Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, and Arizona. 

When it comes to California, nearly the same amount of people moved out as the number of people moved in, the study showed. 

A total of 54.4 percent of people moved away from the Golden State, while 45.6 percent of people moved in. 

The age of people moving in and out also remained level, with people ages 18 to 34 apparently moving to California more than any other age group. 

Those ages 55 and older were the groups moving out more than the younger group. 

The Golden State also remained the populous state, with nearly 40 million residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
