Our Methodology

This is our data of all state inbound and out bound COD moves( consumer moves).   We define the top  inbound and outbound state as those that have the highest proportion of moves where the absolute value difference of inbound and outbound moves is greater than or equal to 400.  This weeds out states that had a small number of moves but would have a high ratio of inbound/outbound moves.
