New Jersey Again Leads Nation in People Leaving

January 5, 2016 at 11:43 am

New Jersey is once again at the top of the annual list of states that people are moving out of.

United Van Lines each year publishes a study of where people move. They look at inbound and outbound moves. New Jersey and New York are at the top of the list for outbound moves.

United says that 67 percent of the moves from New Jersey are headed out. In New York, that number is 65 percent. People are leaving the state because of the weather, according to Michael Stoll, economist, professor and chair of the Department of Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles.

“The aging Boomer population is driving relocation from the Northeast and Midwest to the West and South, as more and more people retire to warmer regions,” Stoll says in United’s news release about the study.

Those of us who live, work and like the State of New Jersey know we can’t do anything about the weather. But the study again brings up questions of our business and land-use climates. And those we can do something about.

The study defines one of the challenges facing New Jerseyans who earn their living building, renovating and selling homes and businesses. Many of In-House PR’s clients fall into that category…which means we do too.

By the way, Oregon led the nation in people moving into the state.
