Whoaaa! Nearly 700,000 people moved out of California last year
Texas is the most popular destination, with 86,000 moving here.
Just under 700,000 people said goodbye to the Golden State last year. The top two reasons for moving out are the high cost of housing and high taxes.
U.S. census data shows that only a half million moved TO California during that same time. That means there are 200,000 more residents going out than coming in.
A recent poll by UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies found that half of California voters have thought about moving out.
