Estimates says More People Moved to Minnesota Than Moved Out Last Year

Census Bureau estimates say more people moved to Minnesota than moved out of the State last year.


The Pioneer Press Reports that the State gained about 7,500 residents through domestic migration for the year ending July 1st.


The numbers break a 15 year streak of more people leaving the state than entering it.  On average the state has lost about 6,600 people annually over the past decade and a half.


Experts aren’t sure what’s spurred the new trend, but says Minnesota’s low unemployment rate and low cost of living may have contributed to the increase.
