I read about the 1,000 people a day leaving Florida along with other
gloom and doom postings. Seems those who feel the state is
on a downward spiral need to figure out why a 1/4 of a million
people became Florida residents recently.

Seems you might want to ask where the 1/4 million came from and if they showed up with their pockets empty and hands out. Let's see the stats on where this 1/4 million came from ...

Simple. Research which states had a population decrease and attribute part of those decreases to the 1/4 mil that came. Florida is not the place to come with your pockets empty and hands out because Florida does not provide much in benefits compared to others.

i had heard mid-decade previously, but the trend is there nonetheless. NY is only getting growth from NYC. People are fleeing the rest of NY state.

I saw those articles. Looks like our area (Sarasota) is getting a lot of new wealthy retirees. That's OK by me!

Plenty of immigrants come to Florida from South and Central America without a pot to pee in ... it is geographically close, climatically similar, and the ethnic distribution is desirable in some areas of Florida. And who needs handouts from Florida - the Feds give out plenty.
