The 2016 AARP Connecticut Survey found that the overwhelming majority of those voting adults surveyed, including millennials, did not want to move out of the state in the next several years. Only 18% of participants said it was “very likely” they would leave the state within the next five years, while only another 22% said it was “somewhat likely” they would move out of state.
