New York State took the top spot as the nation’s leading “population loss” center this week, with new data showing residents fleeing the region due to high taxes, rising housing costs, and a series of other issues.

“The report says nine states saw a drop in population between July 1, 2017, and July 1, 2018. New York led the way at a loss of 48,510 people,” writes CBS News.

“Illinois (45,116), West Virginia (11,216), Louisiana (10,840), Hawaii (3,712), Mississippi (3,133), Alaska (2,348), Connecticut (1,215) and Wyoming (1,197) also lost people,” adds the report.

New York State boasts the fourth highest population in the country at over 19.5 million people. The report released by the Census Bureau also shows Nevada and Idaho leading the nation in population growth.
