Eric Anderson is reporting in the Times Union the number of people moving out of New York outnumber arrivals by nearly two-to-one, according to the 2016 National Movers Study by United Van Lines. Almost two-thirds of the moves involving New York households were outbound, a higher proportion than any other state except New Jersey and Illinois. The study also found that roughly 59 percent of the moves within the eastern United States were outbound. Most of those households are moving to the western states and the Carolinas. The only exception was Vermont, which ranked second on the list of states with the highest proportion of inbound moves, at 67 percent. South Dakota had the highest share of inbound moves nationwide, at 68 percent. Read the full story in the Times Union.
