SURVEY: 67% of N.J. moves were outbound in 2018

TRENTON, N.J. – People are continuing to leave New Jersey at higher rates than they’re moving into the Garden State.

According to the latest data compiled by United Van Lines, comprised of survey results of 26,998 customer interactions, approximately 67% of New Jersey moves in 2018 were outbound. The company recorded 4,430 New Jersey moves in 2018; 2,959 related to out-of-state moves.

“As the nation’s largest household goods mover, our study allows us to identify the most and least popular states for residential relocation throughout the country, year after year,” said Eily Cummings, director of corporate communications at United Van Lines. “These findings accurately reflect not only where Americans are moving to and from, but also the reasons why.”

One-third of those leaving in Democrat Governor Phil Murphy’s first full year of office said retirement was the top reason for their decision to leave.
