Is it the weather? I-95 or The Merritt? Maybe it's the public transportation -- or lack thereof?

More Connecticut residents moved out than in last year, according to a recent study by United Van Lines.

The  St. Louis-based moving company found that Connecticut had the third-highest rate of residents moving to other states -- with 62 percent of moves being outbound.

New Jersey has ranked in the top 10 for the past 10 years, moved up one spot on the outbound list to No. 1 -- with 66.8 percent of moves being outbound.

The state with the highest percentage of inbound migration, however, was Vermont (72.6 percent), with 234 total moves. Oregon had 3,346 total moves -- the second highest percentage with 63.8 percent inbound moves.
