New U.S. Census Bureau Population Data Released Today
Durham, NH– Kenneth Johnson, professor of sociology at the University of New Hampshire and senior demographer at the Carsey Institute, has written two new analyses based on U.S. Census Bureau data released today.
“For states that gained the most from domestic migration during the boom years of the mid-decade, the impact of the migration slowdown has been substantial. Florida, long a major recipient of migrants from other states, saw it domestic migration drop from a gain of 263,000 in 2005, to a loss of 31,000 last year,” he said. “In contrast, Massachusetts, which lost migrants to other states for most of the decade, enjoyed an inflow of domestic migrants and population growth last year.”
