The States People Are Fleeing In 2014

Moving Out - The top outbound states for 2013 were:

New Jersey
New York
West Virginia
New Mexico

The States People Are Fleeing In 2014: "Illinois, No. 2 on the list, with 61% more people moving out than in, has a depressing story to tell. Stoll says that over time the state has lost a third of its manufacturing jobs and a quarter of its jobs in construction, and a significant proportion of its unemployed have been out of work for the long term, so the real employment rate there is much higher than the relatively high official figure of 8.9% rate suggests. The Labor Department stops counting people as unemployed when they have given up looking for work or they take a part-time job that doesn’t pay the rent."

So where is everybody going?
The top inbound states of 2013 were:
South Carolina
North Carolina
District of Columbia
South Dakota
