It looks like Washington ought to pass Massachusetts for 13th place by the 2007 estimate...right before Arizona passes Washington probably by 2009.

The California State Department of Finance puts the state's population at 37.4 Million-about 1 Million MORE then the Census Bureau.

The population losses of Louisiana, Michigan and DC are hardly a surprise and were to be expected, but what was responsible for the population losses of New York and Rhode Island?

^Considering these are 2005-2006 stats, remember what that "nice weather" did to those "good beaches."

NEW YORK POPULATION GOES SOUTH


By ANDY SOLTIS
December 22, 2006

New York was one of four states to lose population this year - and may soon be overtaken by fast-growing Florida, U.S. Census Bureau figures show.

The Empire State's 19.3 million people trail only California's 36.5 million and Texas' 23.5 million. But Florida added 321,697 in the year ending July 1 and has 18.1 million, data released yesterday show.

New York lost 9,538 people. If the trend continues, it will fall to fourth place by the end of the decade.

The exodus is partly attributable to immigrants' entering the country through New York City, then moving to areas with lower costs of living.

But Robert Ward of the Business Council of New York State said it could also be attributed to workers' heading for Texas and other states that are gaining jobs at faster rates.

"People are moving elsewhere in search of opportunities they're not finding in New York," he said.

There was other evidence of Sun Belt growth:

* New Jersey was elbowed from the top 10 by North Carolina. The Garden State grew by 21,410 to 8.7 million, North Carolina by 184,046 to 8.9 million.

* Texas gained the most people, 579,275, but Arizona grew the fastest at 3.6 percent - ending Nevada's 19-year run.

* The South grew 1.4 percent, or by 1.5 million, but the biggest loser was post-Katrina Louisiana, dropping about 5 percent, or nearly 220,000 people.

I think Rhode Island's population has been stagnant since 1990...seems like that census showed RI's population exceeding 1 million, whereas the 1980 census had a 900k population.

And didn't NY have a population of 18 million in the 1970 census?

It is in the position Alabama was in in the early 90s. Economy not very good and lots of rural population (which doesnt grow).

There are some major upsides for the future, which include the dramatic rebuilding of the coast after katrina (very very progressive and pro-transit rhetoric). The Casino market is the largest in the nation behind Vegas and is gaining market share with about 20 new casinos under development around the state. And the capital city, Jackson, poor and crime ridden is bottoming. Also the suburban Memphis area of north MS is on fire and will add a couple hundred thousand over the foreseeable future.


They need a new manufacturing base like Alabama built over the last decade. Alabama's unemployment rate is 3% while Mississippi's is 7% (inflated due to hurricane).

The new auto mfg plant about 20 minutes north of Jackson is a good start.
