Kansas ranks seventh in the nation when it comes to states that people left in 2014, according to an annual survey by United Van Lines.
Results of the 2014 survey of United Van Lines customers found that among those leaving the Sunflower state, 66 percent said they were moving because of a new job or job transfer.
Missouri also trended toward the outbound, with 53 percent of moves leaving instead of arriving.
