WNPR: Trend of More People Leaving Connecticut Than Moving In Worst in Nation
Sometimes the most telling information about a trend comes from a somewhat unexpected source.
Anyone concerned about economic and demographic trends in Connecticut, and their impact, especially on government and politics, can read a pretty quantifiable set of tea leaves—courtesy of Atlas Van Lines, the national moving company.
Accoding to the WNPR story, statistics show that, in 2013, more people move out of Connecticut than moved into the state, making Connecticut an "outbound" state.
Even more troubling, the story says, "Atlas said that in 2013, Connecticut had the highest percentage of outbound moves of any state: 60 percent of the people the company moved in Connecticut -- 1,230 moves -- were crossing out of the state."
