New York State Migration Increases
BUFFALO, NY (WBEN) Some new data showing that New Yorkers are voting with their feet when it comes to living in the state. New York ranks 50th in domestic migration, with 328,538 more people leaving the state than moving in from other states from 2010 through 2013, according to an analysis of new census data by the Empire Center.
