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.

We should just about have all Arnold's bondage paid off by then, don'tcha think???
Must be the cold.
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!
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.
I guess your friend means by "them" are 4 Mil illegals
moving to ID. Two years ago I ate in a resturant in a small town to southern ID. I was the sole English speaker!!
There were 15-17 obvious illegals working in the fields around the town. Give me a break!!!!
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.....
Where I live and work, there are currently over 150,000 houses under construction. Also shoppibg centers, inductrial parke, etc. No shrinkage here.

You made that conclusion by what criteria?
Actually, in this case, she was referring to latte yuppie libs ruining everything. They don't like CA libs there.
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.
Their looks and lots of experience.
I knew that. I just wanted to make a statement.
I know that Moscow and a few others are over run.
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr her her her!!! And wet, too!!! Like fridgid, mannnnnnnnnnn...
