On December 23rd, the U.S. Census Bureau came out with the new 2009 projections for the states populations. Now remember, these are not official yet, just projections. What do you think, and how did your state do?

When I see the numbers, it is a little concerning. Clearly certain states are going to be filled with large, foreign born, high birth rated, low educational attainment, groups. Mean while US native born, residents in these states will flee for more stable communities, where it is not their primary responsibility to provide tax dollars to take care of these demographics. I for see a large tax burden on those natives who remain in these places. Texas seems to be the 1960's california reincarnated. Lots of American people moving there, stable communities, low cost of living, and a strong economy. Lots of prosperity from immigrant to investor.
