CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A national moving company says West Virginia ranks high when it comes to people moving out of state.
The ranking is contained in the annual "Migration Study" compiled by United Van Lines. The study is based on the St. Louis moving company's business in the U.S.
The Daily Mail (http://bit.ly/1crcMxo) reports that the state ranked the fourth highest in the "high outbound" category. That involves residents who moved out of state.
New Jersey had the highest percentage off outbound moves last year. It was followed by Illinois and New York.
West Virginia's fourth-place "high outbound" ranking was down a notch from last year.
