In General, more people moved in the direction of the West and the States in the North-East saw the largest exodus of residents. The four top outbound States in the year 2016, in order, were New Jersey, Illinois, New York and Connecticut.

The Tax Foundation pointed out in a recent blog post that these results are similar to the Organisation of the annual state business tax climate index. In fact, New Jersey, the outbound rate is looked up from 63 per cent — that means that almost two people moved from the garden state, for each person, the moves, also finished last in this index. New York had the second worst business tax climate, according to the tax Foundation. Connecticut was the eighth worst, while in Illinois, more middle of the pack.
