When it comes to residents fleeing a state, apparently it has been proven once again that nobody does it better than New Jersey.

Cue up all your favorite New Jersey jokes. The Garden State has once again topped the list of states whose residents are leaving in record numbers. Let's get some of the jokes out of the way...

New Jersey's favorite song...Movin' Out - Billy Joel

New Jersey's favorite direction....outbound

New Jersey's state motto....For Sale By Owner

New Jersey's second favorite song...(tie) Hit The Road Jack, On The Road Again, Blame It On Taxes (it's actually Blame It On Texas, but I couldn't resist).

This time around, the data was released by Money Wise, and the results mirror many other studies, and the reasons that a whopping 66.8% of moves in the Garden State are outgoing are very familiar...

Job opportunities

Better place to retire 


Cost of living

Bad roadways

We've heard it all before. This is the most consistent result of all of the New Jersey surveys. We are solidly the best state to leave. Yay for us.
