Sun Belt Resurgens

What kind of migration patterns could the United States experience once our economic downturn ends? Current data suggests that growth in the Sun Belt, excepting California, will resume with the big winners being Texas and Florida. You can read more about the Sun Belt comeback here at New Geography. The post has several interesting links for demographics junkies.

So who is leaving for fun in the sun? Here is a link at Gateway Pundit to a new study by the Illinois Policy Institute showing the state has lost one resident every ten minutes for the last fifteen years. And here is a link to the more complex story in California where numbers have stabilized in the last year, but the characteristics of the population continue to change significantly.
