California Population Loss Accelerated During Pandemic…

Sharing is Caring!

California is losing more than twice as many people to domestic migration as it was before the pandemic, a new report from University of California researchers shows.

The research released Wednesday shows the change is largely being driven by a drop in the number of people moving to California from other parts of the U.S. and is most acute in the high-cost San Francisco Bay Area.

The researchers examined anonymized credit bureau data and found that the downward trend in net domestic migration has been accelerated by a 38% decrease in the number of new arrivals between March 2020 and September of this year. The number of new arrivals declined in all of the state’s 58 counties.
