New Jersey is No. 1.
Those pulling up roots in the Garden State have put New Jersey in the top spot for those gone packing more than in any other state, or so says United Van Lines, a commercial moving company.
The company today released a 2012 study of those it has moved throughout the nation. It shows 62 percent of New Jersey migrators are heading out rather than moving into the state. New Jersey replaces Illinois as the state more people are leaving; Illinois is now second.
