New York has had more residents move out than any other state in the nation, according to a new report issued Oct. 27.

The report, by the conservative Empire Center for New York State Policy, found that New York has had a net loss of 1.54 million residents to other states since 2000. That’s equal to 8 percent of the state’s population in 2000, the highest percentage loss any state has experienced this decade.

The report analyzed data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Internal Revenue Service. It examines the movement of residents out of New York, as well as people moving into the state.

“What accounts for New York’s chronic inability to attract and retain more Americans than it loses every year? Any attempt to answer that question must begin with New York’s state and local tax burden,” the report concludes.
