"1. New Jersey. Total score: 63.01
Although New Jersey is not among the most affordable states (it ranked 49), it got top marks in safety (ranked No. 1), quality of life (7) and education and health (5)."

Partial hike in Hartshorne. I was behind schedule.
Some photos of the trail in the new Sandy Hook thread.

Lighthouse and other attractions another day.
This was a scout mission.

According to this article, it's because the number of immigrants from other countries is much lower this year, births are also down and more people are dying as the population gets older. Whatever... we have too many people in NJ already. I've lived in Missouri, Virginia, New York, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Maine, California and spent time in several other states. Quite happy right here, I'm not going anywhere. :)

"Net domestic out-migration, while an ongoing concern, has not gotten any worse in the last year, so we must look to the other components of population change to explain the overall loss."

"The big story from this year’s state population estimates is the dramatic decline in net international migration nationwide."

What part don't you understand? IIRC, there was some kind of change in her employer's operations and she needed to relocate in order to keep her job.
