On the reverse, Kansas ranked #7 in outbound states of 2014. The number one state on the outbound list was New Jersey, followed by New York and Illinois.

In a separate survey of its customers, United Van Lines found the northeast U.S. had the highest number of people leaving for retirement with more than one in four respondents indicating retirement as the reason for relocation.
