New York is losing residents at an alarming rate: report

New York is in a State of Decline.

Despite the nation’s longest economic expansion, the Empire State is actually losing population, an analysis of newly released US Census data released Monday reveals.

The total state population as of mid-2019 was 19,453,561 — a drop of 76,790, or 0.4 percent, from the previous year, according to the study by the Empire Center for Public Policy.

New York was one of only 10 states to suffer a total population decline in 2018-19 — its fourth consecutive annual decrease after five years of growth, and the largest population drop of any state.

Only West Virginia, Alaska and Illinois saw their populations fall at a faster percentage clip.
