People are moving out of New Jersey – But is that a good thing?

August 1, 2018

Several studies have shown that many New Jersey residents are moving out of the state at a high rate. New Jerseyans say that the high cost of living in the state is forcing them to move to Pennsylvania and elsewhere.

But as a state with an already high population, and not much open land left, News 12’s Brian Donohue wonders if maybe it’s a good thing.

Donohue spoke with James Hughes of the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University. Hughes is the top expert on all things demographic. Donohue asked if there is downside to a decreasing population.
