Illinois 3rd In Nation for Outbound Migration

A new study says a lot of people moved out of Illinois last year. According to the 44th Annual United Van Lines National Migration Study, Illinois ranked third in the nation as more than 66-percent of the population moved out of state in 2020.

According to the study, the COVID-19 pandemic factored into many residents decision to move. Additionally, Chicago ranked in the top 10 U.S. metropolitan areas experiencing outbound migration, with 69-percent of moves being outbound.

Among the top inbound states were South Carolina (64%), Oregon (63%), South Dakota (62%) and Arizona (62%), while New York (67%), Illinois (67%), Connecticut (63%) and California (59%) were among the states experiencing the largest exoduses.

    66% of the “people that moved “, moved out of state, NOT 66% of the population.

    I agree. The percentage figures are misleading. Although Illinois is losing population at a rate considered as “hemorrhaging”, there is NO WAY we lost 67% of our citizens! That would be nice though, especially in Chicago.

    Madigan and Pritzer have long leached from Illinois. Illinois is so corrupted and taxes rising they will be left with tbis state no way will Chicago allow Soutern illinois to separate, my question is everyone knows how corrupted it is so why has it continued 🤔 so there is no reason to stay let it it collapse on itself and not at our expense
