15. The Nitty-Gritty About Ohio
As of 2019, Ohio had just under 12 million residents. Not bad for a state that ranks 34th in size. The population density is 282.3 people per square mile, making it the 10th most densely populate state.

In 2019, Ohio ranked No. 6 in outbound moves, with 56.5% of moves taking people out of the state. Ohio sits in the middle of the Midwest, surrounded by Lake Eerie Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Michigan. That's why it has the 10th largest highway network — and that's also why it makes it pretty darn easy for people to leave.
