Certainly, no big migration to PA or Indiana like the movements to the Sunbelt by Corporate America steering it.
I don't think Pennsylvania has been "losing for many years" There were some valleys in the growth, but the state has been growing in population since the census started, just very slowly in many time periods.

Also seems that you are trying to justify Illinois losing and downplaying PA gaining... Facts are facts, PA has been making small but steady gains, and Illinois has been making small but steady loses.

Much of PA's growth is centered in and around Philadelphia and it is now spreading out toward Lancaster County and the Lehigh Valley, a much healthier mega metro area than Indianapolis. Pittsburgh just needs to even out their stagnation/ slight decline in order for PA to pick up the pace. I think the positive outcome of the recent midterm election will certainly help PA from a political standpoint.

We lose our best and brightest. The main reason we don't have private sector growth is the gross receipts tax. Simply put, New Mexico charges taxes on services as well as on goods. For instance, as a real estate agent, I have to charge tax on my services when the home offer is accepted and the title company takes 8.14% out for my services rendered. Competitive private sector companies do not want to pay this tax, nor should they. Therefore, businesses choose to locate in the more business friendly Texas, Colorado, Utah and Arizona.

This could be a great place if we kept more motivated people here. As it stands, we are very gratuitous when it comes to handing out checks to the unemployed. So in a nutshell the government rewards bad behavior while punishing productive behavior.

Too bad it won't overtake MO by 2020 so it got more House and EC standing than MO.

Sure it is. It means we are going to get another member of Congress at Minnesota’s expense.

Sure, but nothing is written in stone. Things can change, and, as you know, they often do.

You asked why it mattered. I answered. It’s highly unlikely that this doesn’t happen.

Agree completely. Florida feels overcrowded, I am content with Indiana's modest growth. Not quite sure what the appeal is of living in a city that is exploding with people.

Most of Indiana's growth is happening in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, and the Louisville suburbs, rest of the state is very slow or stagnant.
