New York State Leads The Nation In Population Decline

BINGHAMTON, NY - APRIL 11: A 'now hiring' sign is displayed in a business window on April 11, 2019 in Binghamton, New York. Due to an aging population, falling birthrates and slowing immigration, America is growing more slowly than at any time since the Great Depression. 2018 saw the slowest rate of growth in America in more than 80 years. While major cities and economic centers, especially in the Sun Belt, continue to see rapid growth, many states and regions are losing people at alarming rates. According to recent data released by the U.S. Census, New York was one of nine states that saw a population decline between July 1, 2017 and July 1, 2018, losing 48,510 residents.
