Other states siphon growth

California's population increase slows, despite immigration, births.

By Clea Benson - Bee Capitol Bureau Published 12:00 am PST Thursday, December 21, 2006

California continues to lose residents to other states, one factor driving a slowing population growth rate, the state Department of Finance reported Wednesday.

Overall, the state gained a net 462,000 residents in the fiscal year that ended June 30, bringing the total population to 37.4 million.

California lost a net of about 67,000 people to other states, the report said, but gained about 213,000 foreign immigrants. Those people, combined with hundreds of thousands of babies born to California residents, accounted for the growth.

This is exactly what the EnvironMental Communutty and the NIMBY's and BANANA's have been working feverishly toward in the last decade!!! They want CA to revert to be populated only by ignorant savages, grinding their nuts on the rocks like in "pre-Columbian" times!!!

We should just about have all Arnold's bondage paid off by then, don'tcha think???

Friend of mine lives in Idaho, says way too many of them are coming there and crapping up the place. She's a Democrat and doesn't like them!

Hmmm. Tax and regulate the &*#% out of your citizens and they'll run away. Who would'a figured?

Oh, yeah, that's right; the authors of the U. S. Constitution did. That's why they left such basic policy matters to the discretion of the states. If one or several states abuse their powers or enact bad policies, then citizens can "vote with their feet" and flee to states with more amenable and effective policies.

This, of course, is why Democrats are forever trying to set "national standards" or impose federal mandates whenever and wherever possible. They want to leave us no place to run.

In effect they're out to destroy diversity.

In 2007 it will shrink further by at least 2 republicans. I intend to retire, sell my house, and move somewhere more conservative. Maybe I'll start my own country.....

That's even worse than the LAO just included in their projections last month.  If the state offers up more free healthcare, it will be even worse.
http://www.lao.ca.gov/2006/fiscal_outlook/fiscal_outlook_06.htm

California’s population growth can be broken down into two major components-natural increase (the excess of births over deaths) and net in-migration (persons moving into California from other states and countries, minus those leaving California for out-of-state destinations). On average, these two components have tended in the past to contribute about equally over time to the state’s population growth. However, their relative shares can vary significantly from one year to the next depending largely on the strength of the net in-migration component-by far the most volatile element.

Natural Increase. We project that the natural-increase component will average 318,000 new Californians annually over the forecast period. This net natural gain reflects an average of around 576,000 births annually partially offset by about 258,000 deaths annually.

Our forecast incorporates the well-documented trend of declining birth rates that has been in effect for essentially all ethnic groups in recent years in California. Despite these declining birth rates, however, the number of new births in our forecast actually trends up a bit through 2012. This is due to significant growth in the female population of child-bearing age groups in the faster-growing segments of California’s population, including Hispanic and Asian women. As a result, even after accounting for growth in the number of deaths occurring annually in California, we project that the natural increase component will grow slightly during the latter half of the forecast period.

Net In-Migration. We project that combined domestic and foreign net in-migration will average roughly 145,000 annually over the next six years. This is less than during the latter half of the 1990s and in the early 2000s when annual net in-migration averaged about 260,000. It also is considerably less than the projected 318,000 natural-increase component noted previously. Regarding this in-migration:

  • Most of the net in-migration we are projecting reflects foreign net in-migration from other nations. This component has been relatively stable over the past decade and has proved to be less sensitive to the economy than domestic population flows between states. We forecast the net foreign in-migration will be fairly constant through 2012, averaging about 165,000 annually.

  • Regarding domestic net in-migration, preliminary data suggest that this is likely to be negative in 2006 (that is, more people left California for other states than flowed in from them). In large part, this is attributable to continued modest job growth and high home prices. Our economic forecast is not strong enough to induce significantly more net domestic in-migration from other states. Thus, we do not foresee a return to net interstate population in-flows for a couple of years, after which only modest net domestic in-flows of 5,000 annually are anticipated. Over our entire forecast period, net domestic out-migration will average 20,000.

Ben...Easy call ! *S*

We left Coronado for Bullhead City...and I NEVER go back except for funerals in the family! *S*

We love it up here -- and I get distressed if I don't hit all three stoplights green between my house and my Poker seat at The Ramada Express, in Laughlin. (9 miles). *S*

As an aside, my gas and electric bill last month (combined) was $82...and gas right now is $2.17.

Ya'll come on UP...and a Merry Christmas.

PS: BTW, earlier this evening I worked out in our home-owner's gym...and took a swim in the heated pool. Really, nothing in Coronado could touch the quality of life on a daily basis. Nothing!

I know!!! They absolutely HATE diversity!!! Their prime directive is the lowest common denominator of middle "c" average!!! Just like the public employee union mob... Anybody exerts some extra effort and their soon shut down for makin the rest of the lame mob "look bad!"

"Lookin bad," is the absolute worst thing that can happen to a liberal GovernMental employee. They're all obsessed with "lookin good," "feelin good" and never bein made to feel uncomfortable by accomplishing a danged thing and thereby lookin too good!!!

I find it intensely interesting that when you read further down in the posted article that my county isn't referred to at all as growing anymore like the surrounding Sacramento, Placer and Yolo. The Growth/No Growth issue is the one that has prevented a County Supervisor from being re-elected in my district for over 30 years!!!

It's dumber than the Tastes Great/Less Filling argument!!! I told you the only growth industry we have up here is Government!!!

A bit chilly and damp here today, but not enough to start things shrinking. :)

Merry Christmas
