We gotta get out of this place - TaxProf has "State migration trends: From blue states to red states." (H/T Maggie's Farm.)

Alternate story for headline: "House may adjourn by end of week." You're welcome, America.

Florida's population has risen annually, without interruption, since the late 1940s. It's a phenomenon that can only be attributed to the Obama-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Reagan-Carter-Ford-Nixon-Johnson-Kennedy-Eisenhower-Truman tax policy.

(Or at least it had risen annually. #1 Florida lost over 58,000 residents between 2008 and 2009, immediately after the cutoff point of the TaxProf chart.)

43 percent of all counties in the United States lost population during the 2000s, twice the pace of the 1990s "exodus." The overwhelming demographic trend is a move from rural areas towards urban ones. Alas, that doesn't fit the "fed-up NYC/LA/Boston/Chicago citizens fleeing to the heartland" meme.
