BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — New York is losing residents; so where are they going?
latest data released by the U.S. Census Bureau put New York State’s population at an estimated 19.5 million, the fourth-largest state in the country.
However, the state’s population dropped by 76,790 between 2018 and 2019, a 0.4 percent loss.
Where are expatriated New Yorkers going?
Career resource website Zippia analyzed ACS Census data from 2017-2018 to find the top states Americans are moving from, and where they’re moving to.
Zippia found that the top states people leaving New York State are moving to are New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida, California, Connecticut, North Carolina.
In January, New York State Sen. Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) and Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara (D-Rotterdam)
announced a new effort to examine New York State’s population loss.
The lawmakers’ announcement cited a Dec. 2019 analysis by the
Empire Center which stated that New York has lost almost 1.4 million residents to the rest of the U.S. since 2010. The report also found that the biggest share of those who left New York are middle class workers and high-income earners.
Senator Tedisco and Assemblyman Santabarbara said they plan to launch an online questionnaire targeted at upstate ares but open to all New Yorkers. The questionnaire phase will be followed by a series of roundtable discussions on addressing population loss and attracting people to upstate NY.

With lingering questions about how the novel coronavirus killed thousands of New Yorkers who lived in nursing homes, a group of state lawmakers is pushing to create an independent commission to get answers from the state Department of Health.
“The importance of discussing this and getting the true facts out is to understand what did and didn’t happen so we can learn from it in case this happens again,” Hammond said.
No doubt, the Health Department and the governor would like this report to be the final word on the subject.
But if it’s all the same with them, we’d still like a truly independent review.
