A lot of people are dumping their old state and moving to a new one lately, it seems. Is this happening in your state? If so, are they coming or going. Are they helping your state by coming/going or are they hurting it?

Also, what draws them to your state if people are moving there? And what makes people leave your state if it's residents are moving?

Here in IL, many move, but somehow the population keeps going up and new things are always being built. Figure that one out! lol

With as many Illinoisans have moved to PHX, youd think youd see a dent? Nope, the opposite. My state remains unaffected.

In Albuquerque there are alot of people from California,Texas,Arizona,Washington and Oregon here, The city has been growing steady and it helps our city and state get new jobs. There are a few other cities in NM growing fast due to east coasters and retirees.

In NH you have many people moving in from MA as well as other states. Having one of the lowest tax burdens in the country helps along with a low unemployment rate! NH is growing at a moderate pace.

Same in New Jersey. International immigration is driving population growth in this state. Our domestic migration is negative. And it's the middle class who are leaving. Many middle class families are asking, "why slave away for a small $800,000 cape cod that's 50 years old when you can get a new McMansion in another state that's twice the size for $300,000?"
