Flocking?

Alabama has seen an increase in population of 4.8% between 2000 and 2009
Florida has seen an increase in population of 17.5% between 2000 and 2009

I guess my definition of flocking is different than yours.

2000-2009 numbers are meaningless since Florida went bust. Stop citing the past, Florida has changed and is no longer attracting the number of residents it did before and many Floridians are indeed flocking to other states.

Or to look at it from another angle, Florida's growth was higher than every NE state except MA in that time frame. New York was at .61%, Jersey at .83%, PA at .66% and 17 other states were also lower..

Good point Mike.

This poster will toss out your points to make Florida look bad.

When Alabama becomes the 3rd largest populated state, come back and talk to us some more.

Early retirement boomers are flocking to Florida and that trend will continue to grow within the next year or so.

People are leaving or FLOCKING out NJ for a reason and they are going south, again for a reason.

Most of the states you mentioned have been recession gainers, with steady controlled growth and diversified economies. Florida has completely gone bust, there is really no way to spin it. I see you tried to divert the Alabama issue.

Yet we are the most populated state by density in the country, while Florida is 8th.

Would love to see facts that show this fantasy becoming a reality.
