    Why am I not surprise that my home state of New York continues to suffer population loss, obviously it is because we are still the highest taxed state in the Union.

    That was my thought as well- and maybe weather.

    People make more money in places like NJ and CT. They can move wherever they want with their earnings. It's not exactly poor people are fleeing these states. Thousands of millionaire households flee. Baby boomers with money in general go to vacation for the rest of their life in Florida or wherever while NJ's urban areas attracts young professionals from Asia. Its not so bad.

    Not to be a party pooper, but 4 decades ago when I graduated high school the migration looked pretty much the same. Except CA was still growing, and had not reached oversaturation.

    May be wise to bear this in mind when you plan to buy a home.

    I'm pretty sure ND was not gaining population 4 decades ago. ;-)

    What's ND?

    Oh, yeah. Well that must be where the refugees from CA are going. Maybe we should collect warm clothing for them...

    North Dakota. I doubt that it is rapidly growing now thanks to the depressed oil prices.

    Thousand of millionare households?

    People are moving based on taxes, jobs and cost of living.

    It was a joke- but also explains the map.

    Well some CA surfer dudes tried it but the winter froze their asses... 100K pay was not enough.
