California Population Drops Again as Residents Flee to Red States

The population of California has plummeted again, dropping below 39 million people as many residents continue to flee the Democrat-run state in favor of red states.

The new data comes from the U.S. Census.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported:

“California’s population dipped by about 75,000 from 2022 to 2023, estimates released Tuesday by the Census Bureau shows, with about 38,965,000 million people in the state this year. The state’s population has fallen since its 2019 peak of 39.5 million, though the annual loss has also slowed each year.

Between 2021 and 2022, California lost a net of about 104,000 people, or 0.3%, higher than the dip of 0.2% between 2022 and 2023.

California’s Department of Finance, whose estimates use different data sources than the Census, suggested the state’s population [drop] could be … less severe. By its measure, the state’s 2023 population is about 39.1 million, falling by just 37,000 people from the year prior.

The department, which also said San Francisco’s population has grown slightly in the past two years, told the Chronicle they believe their data tracked in-migration slightly better than the Census Bureau.”

California’s primary losses are due to domestic migration, partially offset by international immigration.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the population drop was the third straight for the Golden State.

The outlet noted:

Prior to the fiscal year from July 1, 2020, to July 1, 2021, California had never seen even one year of population decline since 1900, according to U.S. Census Bureau data.

The numbers suggest California’s latest exodus is slowing as the pandemic eases, but it still remains a concern.

Only New York, Louisiana, Hawaii, Illinois, and West Virginia lost a larger share of their population over the year.

As The Daily Fetched reported in June, almost half of Californians said they were fed up with high taxes, high crime, and the war on energy, according to a new analysis.

According to census data, California has experienced a net loss of 500,000 residents over the last two years as people seek alternatives due to high living costs and COVID-related restrictions.

However, Newsom believes it has nothing to do with high taxes and rampant crime.

Watch

Many residents have fled to nearby states like Utah, Nevada, and Texas to escape problems like homelessness, crime, and escalating housing prices.

However, California remains the most populous state in the U.S., with around 38 million residents.

While state officials are transitioning to renewable energy to combat climate change, Fox News reported that this could cause power outages and disruptions in the future, especially as the state also pushes for electric vehicle mandates in the transportation sector.
