Sounds like a gross overgeneralization maybe people that think certain places are crowded have lived in them for decades there's really no way to tell.

Population data is interesting, and I look forward to the December numbers. But what would make it more interesting, is if it somehow included "wealth" along with population. Are the people moving out of a particular state wealthier than the people moving in? What is the GDP of each state year-over-year, and how is this related to population? Is the "net worth" (the value of all property and assets held by residents) getting larger, or smaller as its population changes? Can anyone fine tune my thoughts for me?

The GDP's are readily available already...

I was hoping to find everything in one spot, but maybe I'm asking for too much. In order for it to be relevant, it would have to include things like outstanding debt, both of the state and of its inhabitants, and even future obligations, like pension debt. It probably doesn't exist as a "package", it would probably have to be done as a study of some kind, by a university or institute with the funds to do it right. What I'm looking for, I guess, is a general feeling of economic "health" of each state year-over-year.

Some people move for that reason. But it seems like growing places tend to keep growing until there's another reason not to.

The problem with overall state economic health is that many states are not doing exceptionally well across the board, but have a few or in some cases one outstanding city that shines above the rest in their state.

Well since 2010 the population has actually grown 3.3%. I think the recent oil bust is the reason for the negative for the year to year change. And 0.04 isnít exactly losing. Just showing that growth is slowing when it comes to population.

Louisiana of course has lots of issues though but itís biggest I think is that it has not diversified its economy enough. The state is so dependent on the oil industry that when there is a downturn Louisiana suffers. New Orleans is doing well and so are other individual cities that continue to grow. Just not as fast as other areas with more diversified economies. Hopefully the state can work towards that. Crime is bad but everywhere has crime. New Orleans is doing better this year in that respect as well.
