STATE — According to data from private moving company, New Jersey residents are moving out of the state at a higher rate than anywhere else in the country.
United Van Lines reported that 62.5 percent of its New Jersey customers were moving out of the Garden State. Pennsylvania also experienced a high outbound rate, 55.4 percent.
The District of Columbia, North and South Carolina, Oregon and Idaho had high inbound move rates. For more information on the United Van Lines migration study, visit UnitedVanLines.com.
Last month, the U.S. Census reported that New Jersey’s resident population had increased from 8.4 million to 8.8 million between April 1, 2000 and April 1, 2010. However, that rate of growth was slower than other areas of the country and as a result, New Jersey will lose a seat in the House of Representatives at the next Congressional election.
