There have been and continue to be significant shifts in population from some states and to other states.  These moves have fiscal and political consequences some immediate and some that we will see in the years to come.

Why is it happening?  When will it stop?

Looks like some are moving for tax reasons, for cost of living reasons, for saner policies, some cases better weather.

I doubt it will stop, people will always decide to move for their own reasoning and needs.

When I was younger, I was caught up in what my dad called the great New England exodus of the late 80s early 90s due to change of military base assignment. When I discharged I had no desire to move back and chose somewhere else to put down roots, 30 years later , I still think I made the correct choice for myself.

People had numerous reasons for leaving one area to go to another, and they still do.

Why Are They Moving?

According to data in the   2021 United Van Lines annual national movers study , the most common reason, by far, for moving during the years leading up to last was work-related. Although still at the top of the list, moving for work dropped nearly 19% from 2019 to 2021, while moving closer to family saw a significant increase in popularity and now ranks just .7% behind work-related moving. Moving to be closer to family had jumped nearly 13% since 2015 when it lagged behind work-related moving by over 41%.

Retirement and lifestyle moves saw only slight percentage increases last year, but both are up nearly 5% over 2015. Increases in retirement moving will likely continue to rise as the number of persons reaching age 65 increases yearly, according to a   May 2021 report from the Administration for Community Living . Cost of living moves increased by 3.7%, while health-related moving decreased somewhat.

So? Is the seeded article wrong? Are there not a lot of people who are leaving those states and moving elsewhere? Didn't those states lose more population than they gained according to the last census? 

What might you think reasons are for these people moving to other states?

But you're the one who commented that 9 of the top 10 states people are moving from are blue states. Rather than bitch about the contents of the seed article, why don't you maybe comment on why people are leaving those states? What is going on that people are moving away from? And what does that mean for future political power? After all, based on the last census California lost a seat in the House and one electoral college vote due to the loss of citizens. 

What do you think New York will be like in 10 or 20 years if the trend continues?

What’s going wrong in Chicago, John?  Why is there still a lot of racism in your town?

Census 2020: “Black people aren’t leaving Chicago…they’re being forced out”

“Marginalized communities face obstacles  to quality housing, education, employment, and health, pressuring them to search elsewhere for basic needs. That type of neglect is what First District Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson says drives residents reluctantly out of Chicago. “Black people aren’t leaving Chicago. Failed policies are forcing them out,” he argues.”

You seem to have an obsession about this racism in the north. I've never said there is no racism in Chicago, to the contrary, I know a lot of racists in Chicago.

In 2023, New York saw a population decline of 102,000 while California's population declined by 75,423. That's overall loss, not just people who moved out.

Here’s how many people moved out of California in 2023 (foxla.com)

If the trends continue, how much political capital will those two states lose over the next ten or twenty years? New York and California account for 78 seats in the House, Texas and Florida have 66 seats. New York and California are, as you say, blue states while Texas and Florida are red states. What happens if those four states swap positions and red states outnumber blue states for seats in Congress? What happens then?

You can say you don't care but I think everybody should care.

Isn’t the problem more about structural racism than individual racists?  How can such a blue city have so much structural racism in 2024?

Conservatives have been telling us for years that Illinois is losing population. who cares?  It is still the 7th largest state in population.

Maybe because the population loss costs representation, federal funding and means fewer people have to cover the debts incurred by those who leave, Not to mention paying pensions to those who spend it in other states.

the conservatives who rag on this subject dont care about illinois, it is a "political" talking point for them. 

outside a political context, no one gives a shit about who moves where.

So it’s not the structural racism that’s causing a significant number of Black people to leave your fine city?  Did you read the Chicago Reporter article 3.1.11 ?

Also, many who moved due to Covid are now moving back. The migration of the US population in the last few years was unusual and caused by multiple factors.

Waco didn't become preferable to NYC...

I wonder what some really think it means when a state loses reps in Congress.

Does the convoluted math means those states had an increase in population?

if what you claim is true, supply a link showing those state populations increased during Covid because people were moving to those states--if you can. I don't think you can find any data to support your claim.

It is not a negative list, it is a list that presents facts about population movement in the U.S.

It is only negative if YOU interpret it that way

It's only politically divisive if one chooses to make it so.

 I'm more interested in the reasons the people moving are doing so acknowledging some of the reasons could be politically motivated.
