“Regardless of whether you will move, if you had the opportunity, would you like to move to another state, or would you rather remain in your current state?”

The poll results of 500 responses are in!

Here are the results:

   


 
We had results from every state in the United States (except District of Columbia).

The poll is non-scientific in that although we had poll results from every state, the results will be somewhat skewed based on the demographics of those who visit this website. Nonetheless, we believe we’ve captured a valid general sentiment.

 
The two questions asked were the following:

I Live In This State, But Would Like To Move

I Live In This State, And Would Rather Remain Here

 
Our method for each state:

We tallied the votes and determined the percentage (of each state’s total # of votes) for those who would like to move versus those who would rather stay.

This method (as opposed to bulk numbers) helps to offset the skewing from population of each state whereby more votes are statistically received from states with more people in them versus lower population states.

Therefore we believe this method (percentage) better reflects the overall sentiment on average.
