Yeah, NY, CA, IL, and NJ all gained in population despite the negative domestic migration.

Right, I believe Illinois lost 650,000 people to other states, gained 400,000 international immigrants, and gained 750,000 people through natural increase. Hence how the state gained 500,000 people.

Cali and NY are the same.

I'm guessing that these last two years have probably had significant differences from the first eight in terms of both domestic and international migration (save for Texas and Michigan).

Why do you refer to states with increased population as "best" and states that have lowered population as "worst"? It should be the other way around.

Most of the people moving from NY are pensioners who can live like kings in FL or wherever with their $100k a year NY pension. Do they keep stats by age breakdown?

If your state gained a lot of poor immigrants expecting entitlements and services but not paying all that much in taxes and lost taxpayers who contributed greatly to the taxes and fees for services, what's to brag about? Best is in the eye of the beholder.
