Rank these metro by the percent of new jersyans/new york city raised people living in them (out of the whole population) and put the percentage of new jersey/new york city raised people living in them out of the whole population to the right of the cities when you rank them (guesswork)

Los Angeles
San Francisco-San Jose
Houston
Charlotte
Raleigh
Milwaukee
Chicagoland
St Louis
Toronto
Twin Cities
Detroit
Pittsburgh
Indianapolis
Dallas
Cleveland
Cincinnati
Columbus (Ohio)
NW Arkansas
Denver
San Diego
Las Vegas
Phoenix
Tucson
Corpus Christi
Sydney Australia metro
London UK
Vancouver BC
Winnipeg
Kalgoorie Australia
Hobart Tasmania Australia
Honolulu Hawaii
Atlanta
Kansas City
Green Bay
Fargo North Dakota
South Florida

(i want to move to a metro that doesn't have a lot of joisyans,yawkers,nothing personal,i just want to live away from them for once)

New Jersey doesn't have many university spots compared to its population, so most out of state people at a lot of the universities in the Great Lakes area and Northeast are New Jerseyans, although the ones who stay after college aren't the ones who have the typical New Jersey attitude, since we don't like it either.

To simplify matters I would recommend these four based on the original criteria of not having many NY/NJ transplants as well as their more direct opposite feel of NY/NJ in terms of residents.

St Louis
Detroit
Cleveland
Cincinnati

St.Louis in most areas is the polar opposite of NJ but in many areas its also very similar to NJ. I would suggest KC or Indianapolis if you want a city far from NJ.

By perecent i'd say maybe 3% of st.louis's metro is from NJ/NY area while KC it might be more but its still very different from NY/NJ
