W.Va. high on list of residents moving to other states
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A national moving company says West Virginia ranks high when it comes to people moving out of state.
The ranking is contained in an annual migration study compiled by United Van Lines. The study is based on the St. Louis moving company's business in the U.S.
The state ranked the fourth highest in the "high outbound" category; that involves residents who moved out of state, the Charleston Daily Mail reported.
New Jersey had the highest percentage of outbound moves last year. It was followed by Illinois and New York.
West Virginia's fourth-place ranking was down a notch from last year.
