Long-term shifts in the U.S. economy coupled with the recent recession means Americans are more likely to pack up and move for employment-related reasons. Although the total number of residential moves is down, new data shows a clear pattern of the states that people are fleeing the fastest.

Moving company United Van Lines released its 36th annual study of customer migration patterns, analyzing a total of 125,000 moves across the 48 continental states in 2012. The study provides an up-to-date, representative snapshot of overarching moving patterns in the U.S., and reveals a mass exodus from the Northeast.

At No. 1, New Jersey has the highest ratio of people moving out compared to those moving in. Of the 6,300 total moves tracked in the state last year, 62% were outbound.

Not surprised CT is in the top 10, the jobs here all generally suck, and the State seems hell bent on outdoing Cali, NY, and Mass when it comes to ridiculous laws and rights abuses, they don't seem to like being only like the 4th most screwed up and Liberal States and are shooting for higher and more screwed

Surprised California isn't in the top 5 (or even the top 10). Maybe folks are taxed so much they can not afford to move?

Same here. I just knew it would be in the top 5. I bet it is in the top 10.

Not in the top 10.

California is 'balanced'. Probably the wealthier people are leaving tho:

The good news for you is that you can move to another state and you can leave your router where it is now because you'll still get coverage if it's AMPED WIRELESS!!!!!!!!!!!!

HEY! NJ is a great place to live.. if you can afford the property taxes and live in a "safe" town. I left NJ for a few years... came back and will prob never leave again. I love being 45 minutes from NYC and 60 minutes from the beach.

I meant people are just generally fleeing the United States. As in all of them.

A little surprised that map shows Texas as balanced. I figured it would be slightly more on the inbound side.

Y'all come to Texas, we love everyone down here.
