Last year Illinois led the nation in percentage of outbound moves in a report by North American Van Lines, a unit of Oakbrook Terrace-based Sirva. It was the state's fourth time as outbound leader since 2014, according to the report.
The latest National Movers Study by United Van Lines ranks Illinois No. 2 on the list of Most Moved From States in 2018, behind New Jersey, which ranked No. 2 for 2017 and No. 1 for five consecutive years before that. Illinois was in the No. 1 spot on last year’s list and has ranked in the top five for the past 10 years.
