« on: December 10, 2019, 07:01:10 PM »
Sorry guys, no it is not CA.

This is from Jan 2019. Should have then 2019 numbers in a month or so

This started from a Forbes article based on United Van Lines data that was a PITA slideshow. That said Illinois was #1. Maybe they got a pre-release on the 2019 data or maybe it was older data.

I am very happy to see California in homeostasis, though I'm sure the immigrant population boom is not fully reflected in that data.  Kansas will give people free land if they agree to stay for enough time or start a business.

I think it is worth throwing these stats into the mix for a better picture of what is happening.

immigrant population boom

Ya. Probably not moving with United Van Lines. I would say that data skews toward the upper end of the economic scale and completely misses anyone who moves themselves.

Wow. New Englanders are old and Nebraskans are having a (relatively) lot of unprotected sex!

I'm surprised at the variation among states (not counting territories, where things are very different).  Maine is almost 50% older than Utah.

Yes, they will.  However, the school system is crap, so few take advantage of it.  And I don't blame them.

It's because they are poor and can't afford birth control.  The poverty rate in my town in Kansas is heart breaking.  No jobs, no hope.

From what I'm reading, a crapload of them are moving to NC --looks like we're going to increase by 900k since last census.  But the flow, both in-state and from outside, is to urban areas.
