Where Americans are Moving

This next statistical analysis comes to you via Jack’s Blog.   You can use this interactive graph to see, using numbers from 2008, whether people are moving in or out of your county.  Take a look at this rendering of the US Map, centered on Somerset County, NJ.  Heck, select *any* county in NJ.  Red represents people moving out of the state. Black indicates people moving into the state.

Come back, people!  I can’t pay the taxes all by myself!

Ha! Great minds. I saw this at my cousin Jack’s blog yesterday, and I have it teed up to post on my blog today. The dramatic flight from New Jersey is not surprising.

Thanks! It’s really stunning in contrast to some other states. Go and click on the Dakotas. Almost nobody moving… *anywhere*. In fact, in most states there seems to be a balance between in and outbound moves. But you can click on almost every county in NJ and see an outbound trend.
