For Twenty Years Now, a Higher Percentage of New Yorkers Have Fled This State Than Have Residents of Any Other State


But you know what? We keep having babies like crazy, so our population has remained relatively steady, even though 1.5 million people have left New York for other states since 2000. The population, in fact, climbed to 19.4 million in 2010 from 18.9 million in 2000. In other words, New York, we can quit you, we just can't quit having unprotected sex. [City Room/NYT]
