I tried reading this several months ago and the clickbait is absurd....

I know of many that have fled or are planning on moving out of NJ. Sadly we gotta wait a few years, per the wife.

I'm fleeing the East Coast and heading to the Midwest (St. Louis area or Columbus, Ohio). Seems like a lot of companies are moving away from the coasts for the more affordable communities in the Midwest.

Lots of opportunities there, and a more laid-back lifestyle.

And yeah, the "click bait" is horrendous.

Different strokes for different folks. I am a native of Ohio and live in Michigan. I have found the quality of life in both states to be superb (yes, I realize that Michigan wasn't on either list) but someone would have to pay me to move somewhere like Oregon or Colorado that is getting overrun with transplants and there is no amount of money that would convince me to move to Nevada.

This is clickbait and typical Forbes city / relocation nonsense. They know how much people like to read this kind of stuff. Too bad it's skewed and manipulated by payola and city PR boosters.

Even in rare cases of when they get it right, they invariably ruin towns and cities with their lead in sending huge numbers of transplants their way. Scumbags.

I feel that NJ is too desirable for most people, so I don't think a lot of people are fleeing NJ. People only flee NJ to move to NYC.

Throughout US history, most Easterners flee to the West. Most Northeasterners are fleeing South, but recently most Northeasterners are not going deeply south to Florida, they are moving to places like the Carolinas. The generations are changing when it comes to retirement. Most people my parents age are retiring from the East to places out West like Las Vegas and most do not retire to Florida like the Boomers did. They are moving to the Carolinas and not as deeply south. The Northeastern Boomers move to Florida or Arizona (out West).

Would be interesting if it's broken down by age. The only people I know moving south are retired.

Migration statistics (compiled by the IRS or Census Bureau, for instance) actually suggest that New Jersey receives a net inflow of people from New York, and a net outflow to other parts of the country. Taxes and the cost of living are major motivations for these migrations, and companies are moving along with the people in many cases. For instance, Honeywell International Inc. announced this week that its headquarters will be moving to Charlotte from Morris Plains, NJ.

There are certain subsets of people who may have very different migration patterns from the overall population. I think it is plausible that many young, single recent college graduates are moving from NJ to NYC. But most of the population doesn't fall into that category.
