I wonder how much would change once you exclude retirees?

Not sure the relevance of excluding retirees but I am sure the states that receive the retirees are not complaining since they usually have more disposable income.

Am sure may be the case with many but DC is definately reversing this trend over the last many years and accelerating quite quickly today

Are you sure? You can have domestic outmigration even with population growth.

Imagine this constant pattern:

1) Singles keep moving into your city, at a rate of 10,000 / year
2) Singles get married and have kids
3) Families move out, with kids, domestic outmigration at a rate of 16,000 / year

Or immigration. NYC in the 90s had a very high domestic outmigration (though it's been declining for the last 5-10 years) but added 1 million people.

A lot of people of older people in the Northeast move to Florida or the south once they retire for warmer weather.

You may be correct but in recent years suspect the in movement is outnumbering out and birth rates

I think it might significantly affect Florida's and Arizona's numbers but not Texas, NC or GA.

OUCH! That's more than the population of Connecticut.

How anyone is still able to move there from the rest of the United States without knowing that statistic must be crazy.

If it wasn't for all the immigrants having kids by the hundreds of thousands, California would have less population than Texas by now.
