    Rate At Which People Stopped Moving To California Surprised Researchers: ‘Statewide Phenomenon’

    By Emma Colton | Fox News,

    California lost 1 million residents over 10 years; William La Jeunesse reports from Los Angeles.

    The number of people moving to California has significantly dropped since the pandemic started last year, while the number of people fleeing the state continues to rise, according to a new study. 

    Sign reads Now Leaving California

    “I guess I was a little bit surprised to see that entrances had fallen so much. It wasn’t so much that we saw it in a particular area. For me, the surprise was that this was a statewide phenomenon,” co-author of the study from California Police Lab, Evan White, told KCRA.

    The study found a 38% decrease in people moving to California at the end of September 2021 compared to the end of March 2020. The study found a 12% increase in residents moving out of state.

    White noted that while the spiked exodus from the state is notable, the drop in people moving to the state is “the bigger story.” 

    He said the biggest changes were in the San Francisco Bay Area. There was a 45% decrease in entrances from other states to the Bay Area and a 12% increase in residents leaving for other states. 

    Sacramento County, home to the state’s capital, saw a 33% decrease of people moving in and a 13% increase in people leaving for other states. 

    Overall, all regions of the state saw anywhere from a 25% to 45% decline in out-of-state entrances.

    Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the study’s findings. The study comes after the state had some of the most strict coronavirus measures in the country, which helped spark a recall effort against Newsom this year. The recall ultimately failed to oust the Democratic governor. 

    This year, California also lost one of its 53 House seats for the first time in its history due to the stall in population increases.
