As Covid infections swept the nation in 2020 and 2021, states differed on restrictions and guidance surrounding the pandemic, encouraging many to migrate to another state.
Health, jobs, housing, and quality of life were all factors in influencing Americans to leave for other states. Deaths and births were also a factor in states’ population growth and decline, yet not as significant as migration.
From 2020 to 2021, Idaho, Texas, and Florida were among the states that saw the largest population increases, while New York, California, and Massachusetts were among the states with the most declines.
