There are a lot of things to be proud of for us here in the Garden State when compared to the rest of the country.

From one of the best doughnut shops in the nation to the best beach in the whole country, and even one of the best hotels in the world, New Jersey tops a lot of lists that we can brag about.

But according to a recent report, we're also topping another list that isn't exactly great news.

According to United Van Lines' "2017 National Movers Study", New Jersey is right at the top of the list of states that people are leaving.

We're not #1, but we're awfully close.

The study puts Illinois as the state that most people are moving out of, with NJ as #2, and New York rounding out the top 3.

That's actually better than last year, when we were #1.

So where are people going?

Looking at the other side of the report, it would seem that people are leaving cities and crowded suburban areas to move to more sparsely populated areas, with Vermont, Oregon, and Idaho as the states that have seen the highest influx of people moving in.

What do you think? Would you leave to the Garden State and head to the mountains of New England if you had the opportunity? Weigh in on the comments section and let us know!
