Study shows millennials may not be fleeing Jersey after all

September 11, 2018

“Two-thirds of those who leave New Jersey are millennials,” said Rutgers professor Cliff Zukin.

A new report commissioned by New Jersey Policy Perspective and done by students at The Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University argues you have to ask if they’re leaving at higher rates than past generations. What they found was no.

They say rates have been steady since the 1980s.
