No thanks. Out of 12 possible months to enjoy, you're really left with three at most.

Educated populace is leaving due to brain drain, and theres also no jobs.

If this is your kinda thing, have at it. I'm counting down the days til I leave.
Actually the worst thing about New York State is not the weather or the lack of jobs, but the sad sacks who just won't stop whining about it and get the F out, already.

Florida is busy paving all of that over as fast as possible with strip malls and retirement villages.

As far as the palm trees... you do know they're just trees, right?

As if there's something prestigious about living in Arizona.

You guys should really catch up on the trends of domestic migration. North to South has been falling for years.

Yeah huh? Is that why six out of the top ten states that saw the largest population growth over the last year, July 2013 to July 2014, six were Southern states, and none were northern states.

Increase
1. Texas 451,321

2 California 371.107

3 Florida 292,986

4 Georgia 102,584

5 Arizona 96,487

6 North Carolina 95,047

7 Washington 87,788

8 Colorado 83,780

9 South Carolina 60, 553

10 Virginia 55, 944

per the Census Bureau

Um... overall population growth is not the same measure as domestic migration. Nor is a 1-year estimate the same as a multi-year trend. The fact is that Northern transplants could stop altogether and these states would still grow. A lot of it has to do with natural growth, which is always the largest chunk of population growth in a state. In any case, trends matter. Celebrating the South's boom today is like whistling past the graveyard.

Thank you for replying. This topic was incomplete without the chest-thumping of a Southern alpha male.

By the way, babies don't "vote with their feet." I'll let you figure that riddle out on your own.

One thing I have to say is the high population growth in Texas is also due to high birth rates. If not mistaken Texas lead the country in teen pregnancy, which is nothing to brag about. I seen it to often as well as back in my high school days.

According to the article...two thirds of the Palmetto States population from 2013 to 2914 came from people moving into the state. Otherwise net migration. ps for those who do not know the Palmetto state is South Carolina
The Post and Courier. 10,000 more than New York State for the same period.

You are most welcome, Anytime I can be of assistance just ask.



Oh the other remark is soooooo hard to figure out, you must have to be a Northeasterner to get it right.
