Several states gained approximately the same number of residents as those that left. This list of “balanced” states includes California, New Mexico and Delaware. Delaware appeared on the balanced list for the second consecutive year.
Midwest and Pacific West are leading in attracting new employees.
So Midwest actually is doing well. But its retirees are moving out.
“Regions which saw the most inbound moves for company transfers included the Midwest (63 percent) and Pacific West (62 percent). The region with the largest exodus of residents due to finding jobs elsewhere was the southern U.S. (62 percent). Across all regions, nearly one in five of those who moved in 2016 moved to be closer to family.”
Idaho and boise area is great for peaceful/retirement life. Spent my masters life for 2 yrs in boise and really had a blast, who dont like the college towns. Its a great little town with all you need but will get bored out soon for young people. There’s Micron, HP, Albertsons, some other small companies around. I hear a lot of outward migration from california to Idaho/utah/arizona
It doesnt snow that bad as a matter of fact, may be a handful of days proper snow. Woke up at noon anyway after working pretty late during the grad school days, didnt bother much. Ski/snowboard and beer. Sunvalley is a very popular ski destination
They also have tri cities as a MSA - Boise, Nampa, Meridian
BYU has the lowest out-state tuition I know. Actually it’s the same as in-state. They really want to recruit more mormons. So if you know people from overseas want to come study for cheap in the US, tell them about BYU.

I do not understand the prejudice against Mormon.
I didnt study mormonism in depth but
Great family values, responsibility to raise a family
Hardowrking nature, many successful entrepreneurs at a local level since they have to raise big families.
cannot drink coke, pepsi, alchohol, cant watch R rated movies, Cant have sex prior to marriage, etc etc. BYU doesnt sell coke, pepsi or any other major carbonated drinks on campus, not that they are healthier choice but goes to show how restrictive the religion is.
Night life sucks ( very less permits for bars to open late)
Team mates used to ask how avengers is beacuse they couldnt watch it, seriously :).
Sundays you cant get anything done, car showrooms are closed, most businesses are closed.
Some team mates have upto 6 kids, Pretty hard
Most of the folks in college up until 30s forgo mormonism - they are called jack mormons. When they want to settle down, they start practicising mormonism, get married and settle down. Seems like a good compromise.
In 2017, 523,131 people came to California, a tiny 1.3 percent sliver of the state’s 39 million residents. All the Texas lovers should note the Lone Star state was last year’s top source for new Californians via interstate relocation, with 40,999 making the move West.
New York was the former home of California’s second-largest source of new residents (34,278) followed by Washington (33,143); Illinois (27,117); and then a border state — Arizona at 26,907.
As for outflow, 661,026 exited California, a scant 1.7 percent slice of the population. Texas — the second most-populous state — was also the top spot for folks departing California as 63,174 relocated to the Lone Star State. Next came west-of-the-Rockies states. Arizona at 59,233; followed by Washington (52,484); Oregon (50,109) and Nevada (47,513).
