It seems like you hear more and more about a great exodus of people leaving New Jersey. And there is some truth to that. According to an article in the Philly Inquirer, New Jersey just lost its 10th place in total population to North Carolina.

However, New Jersey is still the most densely populated state - 1,165 people per square mile, which is denser than Japan (835 people per square mile) and India (914 per square mile).

And with the 846 Presidential candidates set to start campaigning here, it's only bound to get a bit more tight.
