Garden State residents are leaving … fast.
Nearly two-thirds of moves involving New Jersey were outbound in 2014, according to nj.com, citing a survey conducted by United Van Lines, the moving company.
United tracked 4,003 outbound New Jersey moves versus 2,169 inbound moves last year. The exodus amounts to almost 65 percent of the moves.
"The study is based on household moves handled by United within the 48 contiguous states and Washington, D.C.," the company said. It said it classifies states as "high outbound" when 55 percent or more moves involve people leaving the state.
Last year marked the fourth time in five years New Jersey led the U.S. in outbound migration, the report said. Nearly half of those leaving New Jersey were bound for Florida (15 percent), California (14), Texas (9) and North Carolina (7.5), spokeswoman Melissa Sullivan told nj.com.
