  2. New York (64.6%)

If you look at the United Van Lines study you’ll see an interactive map that will show the results of the study from 1978 on. It’s an interesting graphic and it also illustrates that South Dakota has not been an outbound state since 2001. That is thirteen years of more people wanting to live in South Dakota.

The interactive map also includes statistics for each state including age, income, and reason for move.
