The United States is hailed as the land of opportunity. People from several countries around the world are eager to immigrate to America. But surprisingly, there are various places in the US the locals themselves are fleeing in numbers.
According to a report, more than 35 million Americans moved interstate last year. Idaho, Arizona, and South Carolina show the highest inbound moves as people continue to abandon major states like California, New York, and New Jersey. Below, we present a complete list of the states Americans do not want to live in anymore.
The main reason causing people to move out from New Jersey is the high housing expenses and tax rate. New Jersey has the highest property tax in the nation. According to a CNBC report, 46% of people moving out were seeking better job opportunities, and 24% were retirees who want to spend retirement in quieter regions.
