More and More Californians Leaving the State
The mass exodus from California continues. A recent census report found that hundreds of thousands of Californians migrated from the state in 2010.
Of the ten largest state-to-state-migration-flows, the move from California to Texas topped the list with nearly 69,000 people relocating to the Lone Star State. Other frequent out-of-state moves included; 47,000 to Arizona, 39,468 to Washington, and 35,472 to Nevada.
And while nearly 39,000 people relocated from Texas to California, the migration from California to Texas has been the most frequent state-to-state move since 2007.
The largest number came in 2007, when 78,310 people headed to the Lone Star State.
