Simple fact is that you don't know why people are leaving. Could be because they're making more $ at the end of the day in other states, could be they don't like the climate (all the kinds), could be they can't afford the high cost of living.
If we're losing 10,000s of Zuckerbergs I'd be worried but if we're losing 10,000s of those living around the poverty line I'd be ecstatic. Has anyone ever done what the true and unbiased cost/gain is of the people moving out vs those coming in? Or is it just that someone knows someone who makes 6 figures and wants to move to TX to avoid paying taxes? I'm not gonna lie, I'm kind of in the latter group but TX sucks for what I want out of the environment I live in apart from the lower taxes. It's hot as shit in summer, humid a lot of the time, cold in winter, flat, etc.. At the end of the day it's not worth it for me to not be happy where I live and pay less in taxes so I stay put, for now.

Births - Deaths + People Moving in - People Moving out = Net Population Increase/Decrease.
In this case it was an increase. So what if more people moved out than came in to the tune of a few thousand. The end result is that during that time the population increased so it was not a net loss.
Maybe we're talking about different things as all I was saying is that even with more people moving out than coming in the population still increased.

hey, hey, congrats buddy! I wasn't being super-serious about the comment. Rather, there are some good jobs and good money to be made in north dakota and texas right now because of the oil shales ---- to the point where wal-mart and mcdonalds are starting people off at $18plus an hour. I read somewhere else that Home Depot is flying people into ND to work 2 on/2 off because there are not enough local workers. The dry cleaners in one ND town had to close down not for lack of business, but nobody could work the store.
California is an interesting dichotomy. There are very, very wealthy people and then there are very, very poor migrant workers and a lot of illegals. The people in the middle get screwed.

When you have kids, you never really retire. So stop dreaming!

Need to make some good money if I'm going to pay for 2 kids to go to private school and then retire.

Now, you never told us what you think this data--such as it is--tells us. Personally, this is what it tells me:
1. There are states like Texas with resource-based economies that are horrible places to live, but where people can get jobs picking strawberries and digging stuff out of the ground.
2. There are Western/Southern states like TX, FL, and CO where people move to retire. Sometimes this is because housing is cheap in some cases (parts of all these states are not cheap, of course), and sometimes it's because these states have attributes old people find appealing (warm, mountainy splendor, "old fashioned" small-town allure, etc..).
No logical case can be made for the data saying anything more than that, but of course this will not stop some from trying to use it to make an illogical argument.
