The United Van Lines National Movers Study has been cited in numerous news articles with headlines like “More residents move out of New Jersey than any other state.” Senate President Steve Sweeney even used the report as a way to track outward migration saying it “underscores the need for fiscal reforms”. But how accurate the study is depends on who you talk to.

“I’m sure the study is very, very accurate,” according to Jim Hughes, dean emeritus of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Public Policy and Planning at Rutgers University.
