  • 1. Population Migration in NYS: 1960-2010
  • 2. NYS Migration, 1960-2010
    Since 1960, New York has lost 7.3 million residents to the rest of the country.  This was partially offset by an influx of 4.8 million foreign immigrants, resulting in a net decline of 2.5 million residents.
    New York’s average annual domestic migration loss – the difference between people moving in from other states and out to other states -- jumped from about 60,000 people in the 1960s to an all-time high of nearly 237,000 in the 1970s.  The state’s domestic migration outflows have averaged between 130,000 and 160,000 a year since 1980.
    For a second consecutive decade, New York’s net population loss due to domestic migration was the highest of any state as a percentage of population.
    New York’s net migration loss – the sum of domestic and foreign migration – increased over the last decade to its highest level since the 1970s. Thirteen states had negative net migration between 2000 and 2010, and only three (Illinois, Louisiana and Michigan) lost a bigger share of their populations to migration than New York.

  • 3. NY Migration Trends, 1960-2010
    The 1970s was by far New York’s worst decade in the past 50 years in terms of domestic migration outflows.
    This was also the first (and so far only) decade on record in which the Empire State’s population actually declined.

  • 4. NYS Population, 1960-2010
    Increase of 2 million people in the state’s total population since 1980, despite the continuing net outflow of residents to the rest of the country, can be attributed mainly to the “natural increase” of births over deaths.
    Since New York’s population has risen much more slowly than the national average, it has lost 10 congressional seats since 1980, and will lose two more based on 2010 census results.

  • 5. Components of Migration, 2000-2010
    Between 2000 and 2010, New York was one of 22 states (plus the District of Columbia) that lost more residents than they gained due to migration within the United States.
    New York’s loss of nearly 1.6 million residents to domestic migration was equivalent to 8.27 percent of its base population at the start of the period, higher than any state or the District of Columbia.
    This was also the first (and so far only) decade on record in which the Empire State’s population actually declined.

  • 6. NY Counties, Components of Migration, 2000-2010
    New York City was the epicenter of migration in and out of New York State during 2000-2010.
