More Americans are packing their bags and fleeing New Jersey than any other state in the nation; according to new data released by United Van Lines.

“More people moved out of the Garden State in 2018 than any other state, according to a new study by United Van Lines – though New York wasn’t far behind,” writes the New York Post.

“The Northeast region continues to see more residents leaving than moving in, with 57 percent of all moves within the Northeast US being outbound moves,” said the report released by the moving company.

The study found that 66.8% of those moving to or from New Jersey were “outbound,” followed by Illinois, Connecticut, and New York.

“Vermont – whose population is the second-smallest in the nation — was the only Northeast state that made the ‘most moved to’ list, topping the list with 72.6 percent of its movers making inbound migrations,” adds the Post.
