Illinois Number 2 Outbound State Again In United Van Lines Annual Migration Study

I just got finished reading a press release for United Van Lines’ 37th Annual Migration Study, which tracks the states the company’s customers move to and from during the course of the year.

I saw that Illinois is the number two outbound state for a second year in a row, second only to New Jersey. From that January 2 press release:

Moving Out
The top outbound states for 2013 were:

1. New Jersey
2. Illinois
3. New York
4. West Virginia
5. Connecticut
6. Utah
7. Kentucky
8. Massachusetts
9. New Mexico

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

United Van Lines added:

New Jersey (64 percent) continued to top the high outbound list claiming the top spot for three out of the past four years. Illinois (61 percent) held steady at the number two spot after falling from the top spot in 2011.

The Northeast is the most prominent region on the high-outbound traffic list. In addition to New Jersey, New York (61 percent), Connecticut (59 percent) and Massachusetts (56 percent) are also included…

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

Why am I not surprised to hear about all the people moving out of Illinois and the Northeast these days in this migration study?

As for the top inbound states? Oregon, followed by South and North Carolina, D.C., South Dakota, Nevada, Texas, and Colorado.

Oregon. Like Portland, where all the young people go to retire?
