Report: More People Moving Out Of New Jersey Than Other States

NEW YORK (WCBS 880)/CBS 2 – More people moved out of New Jersey in 2010 at a faster rate than any other of the contiguous 48 states, according to a national moving company.

United Van Lines says out of the 146,837 interstate household moves handled by their company, New Jersey was this highest out-bound move at 62.5 percent.

WCBS Anchor Wayne Cabot talks with Melissa Sullivan of United Van Lines about the study.

Sullivan says New York and Connecticut fall into the ‘balance’ category.

So, where is the highest in-bound move? For the third consecutive year, Washington D.C. holds the top spot at 64.3 percent.

United Van Lines has been tracking household interstate moves since 1977.

CBS 2’s Tony Aiello talks with Lew Chakrin, Dean of the Anisfield Business School at Ramapo College.

“It’s been this way for a while, caused by a number of things. High taxes in the state of New Jersey, an unfriendly, what was thought of as an unfriendly business environment,” said Charkrin.

    I left the area years ago, and I dread even having to go back at any tme for family visits. Family, yes, that part of the country, no. Lived in NY, Jersey, RI, and PA – all miserable – and the best place ever lived was down south, NOT Florida. Calling all southerners rednecks and bringing up Jim Crowe laws just shows the ignorant mindset of the Jersey folk, which is a big part of what is wrong with Jersey and Northeast arrogant attitude. Please stay where you are,Guido’s and Guidette’s – we don’t need you down here.

    At the business summit meeting, the governor thought nj residents are more patient to wait 1- 1 1/2 years!
    Neil Cavuto thought the Gov did not have that much time.! I agree ! I think we need results sooner. What do you think ? yes or no

    62.5 % are moving out of nj !

  5. Ben Lee says:

    This is not good for NJ to be on top of the list for out-migration.
    This is a “reality check” for our state.
    Let’s weak-up our GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS!!!
    -Reduce our property taxes.
    -make NJ business friendly.
    -streamline development approvals
    -invest in sustainable planning & design to improve our environment

  6. Ricardo says:

    Can’t wait to also leave new jersey this place is garbage it smells it’s ugly the people are rude ….and they def dont know how to drive
    I love Florida hate that fact that all nj doutchbags r moving down there
    If u say u love this place u def need to do to some traveling nj is the worst place in America

  7. Jacob F says:

    Anyone who is familiar with scientific methods will see at least some of the flaws in taking these figures as indicative of a larger trend.

    One need not rely on data from a single moving company to gauge trends in migration. There’s Census data for that.

    1. jeriatric says:

      Latest census reports that Michigan was the only state with a net loss.

  8. Barb says:

    I can’t see why anyone would want to live in that disgusting excuse for a state anyway. Only problem is, they all are moving south and destroying our ways of life here.

    1. Harold says:

      Very ignorant of you. This a good place to live. At least there is always work. I tried to live in FL. and had to come back home. Was actually starving in FL. And in my opin ion the rest of this country is the same way.

      1. vremember says:

        yes the great state of new jersey is a wonderful place to live.i am trying as hard as i can to move back also .wonderful state

    2. viremember says:

      what life is there in the south .nothing but red necks and jim crow. who would want to live in the suoth .it is just a butt hole state.and has nothing to offerbut more of nothing

  9. joe murph says:

    why would someone even want to live in new jersey, taxes are high & it smells

    1. MIke Childs says:

      The taxes are high and they pay for some pretty good schools. In these schools you learn the difference between verbs and nouns and when to use “stinks” and “smells” in a sentence.

    2. virginiax says:

      smell the hog farms in the south .they are built by the owner in people back yards ,then they have to sell their homes for nothing .talk about smells

  10. pogo the clown says:

    I know that many of the people moving out are doing so because the property taxes in many municipalities have skyrocketed while home values have decreased. Property tax appeals are being denied because the municipalities need more revenue.

    This trend will sadly continue and most likely spread to many other areas of the country.

  11. Marti Lewis says:

    NJ is one of the most densely populated states. Naturally there are more people moving out than there are moving out of Montana.

  12. Marti Lewis says:

    Maybe they couldn’t stand Gov. Christie (LOL).

  13. Jim Gordon says:

    My folks moved out of Morris County 2002 because the Property Tax was $13,000 in Parsippany for 1979 home in Development.

    Mind you we benefited from the good public school district. But when we three kids move out of new jersey.

    There was no need for parents to keep a 5-bedroom house.

    I moved out off new jersey of because the traffic going to toward city or to the suburbs.

    Look at traffic during rush hour.

    Garden State Park or Exit 42A, RT 80 west bound
    cheers

  15. CantGetaName says:

    I know lots of folks that have moved out of NJ. With the near highest property taxes and car insurance in the nation why stay. And the gang situation is getting worse as well. I’m about 2 years from leaving myself but have a business and college kids to support. NJ is going to be a Highway State very soon, most of New England’s commerce runs through NJ Turnpike, Route 78 or 80.

    1. pogo the clown says:

      The gang activity is frightening. The problem here is that the gangs are being supported by “organized crime” … aka The Mafia … specifically, the Lucchese family – I am sure other families as well, but we know about Lucchese due to the arrests made not too long ago. There is BIG money when these 2 parties work together. They win – we lose. Law abiding citizens cannot get firearms to protect themselves in NJ – the criminals have access to all the guns they need.

  16. Wayne Cabot says:

    62.5 percent out-migration, 37.5 percent in. It adds up to 100 percent. The report does not consider in-state moves.

  17. The Good Samaritan says:

    The numbers are flawed because it does not state how many moved into New Jersey.

    1. Sal says:

      Maybe if you actually READ the article, you would see it focuses on the number of people moving OUT of New Jersey compared to other states.
