Texas is roughly 50% bigger than New York. The fact only 15,000 more people moved away from Texas than NY is kind of stunning, before you even get into the fact 240,000 more people move into Texas. Basically each year, you are seeing the gap from Texas and NY grow by a Richmond VA in net domestic migration. In the case of Florida, the gap is fittingly, Buffalo. Each year.

New York has the largest economic engine in the country. It still is repelling three people for every two people it gains.

I will not move back North. I am much happier further South. I like the culture and weather much more than where I used to be.

Yet has essentially 20 million people in a state that is 30th in land size.

Keep in mind that NYC is a multi state metro as well. So, moving to the suburbs could mean moving to NJ as well.

Given that these are estimates, it will interesting to see if they are accurate or not.

I moved from Michigan to South Texas in 2014. No way am I moving back to gray winter skies, snow, and ice. I am done with that. Today here in South Texas, I am waking up to a glorious sunny morning. The forecast is plenty of sun and a high of 80 degrees. You just can't beat that. Why should I move back?

Thatís fine. But in a discussion of domestic migration, NY has its faults.

Moved back to Colorado from Dallas-Fort Worth in 2011. Don't regret it at all. Wish I'd done it in 2001 when I was offered a job here instead of punishing myself for another decade.

I am looking to move back to Upper Midwest or northern New England. I hate the heat and humidity with a passion and excessive amounts of rain all year in the South. I also miss the snow, four seasons, and lakes of the north. Quality of life is better overall in a number of categories the North based on my personal experience, but some metro areas are better than others overall. Regardless, I have a couple of areas in the Northwoods picked out for retirement, so will move back one day.
