It’s an Empire State of decline.Beset by high taxes and quality of life woes, 545,498 New Yorkers left for other states in 2022, according to US Census data.Top destinations included Florida — the most popular choice — followed by New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania as well as more distant states like Texas and California. The exodus was partly offset by more people moving to the Empire State in 2022 than any year over the last decade, with 301,000 new residents making the transition. Despite that uptick, New York still suffered a net population loss of 244,000.The departures have yet to impact New York City housing costs, with median rents continuing to hover near all-time post COVID-19 highs.According to a recent report from real estate company Elliman, Manhattan median rents stood at $4,350 in September — up from $4,022 during the same period last year. Median rents in Brooklyn and Queens — $3,700 and $3,528 respectively — are also near record highs.Trading snowfall for sunshine, more New Yorkers moved to Florida in 2022 than any other state, with 91,000 people making the swap.After Florida, fleeing New Yorkers opted for more proximate locales — with 75,000 decamping to New Jersey, 50,670 to Connecticut and 44,000 to Pennsylvania.California, which absorbed a net population decline of 342,000 in 2022, attracted 31,000 New Yorkers last year.The number of New Yorkers moving to Texas surpassed 30,000 for the first time in 2022 — up from 18,000 in 2019 for an increase of 67%, the data show.North Carolina, Massachusetts, Virginia and Georgia rounded out the top ten destinations.Out of all 51 other states the least popular choices were Wyoming, Montana, Iowa, Mississippi and South Dakota which all saw less than 500 people move from New York in 2022.South Dakota was the least preferred, with just 52 people scampering to the Mount Rushmore State last year.A Post analysis of the census bureau’s state-to-state migration figures shows a steady decline from New York each year since 2012, with departures vastly outpacing inbound moves and roughly 4.6 million people waving goodbye to New York over the past decadeRoughly 2,700,000 people relocated to New York over that span — resulting in a net population loss of 1.9 million residents.Compared to 2012, the number of exits in 2022 was up a startling 34%. That year, 405,00 people left the state, while 270,000 moved in — a less marked loss of 135,000 residents.Florida: 91,201New Jersey: 75,103Connecticut: 50,670Pennsylvania: 44,807California: 31,255Texas: 30,890North Carolina: 25,024Massachusetts: 21,186Virginia: 17,516Georgia: 16,535South Carolina: 15,537Illinois: 12,072Maryland: 9,453Colorado: 8,526Ohio: 8,431Michigan: 6,161Tennessee: 5,821District of Columbia: 5,647Arizona: 5,071Washington: 4,732Delaware: 4,603Indiana: 4,124Alabama: 3,827Nevada: 3,795Oregon: 3,712Minnesota: 3,196Vermont: 3,196Louisiana: 2,946Maine: 2,885Puerto Rico: 2,847Missouri: 2,742New Mexico: 2,467Alaska: 2,430Rhode Island: 2,324Utah: 2,236Kentucky: 2,200New Hampshire: 1,939Kansas: 1,865Oklahoma: 1,840Wisconsin: 1,626Hawaii: 982West Virginia: 949Idaho: 880Arkansas: 666Nebraska: 554North Dakota: 526Wyoming: 463Montana: 441Iowa: 381Mississippi: 113South Dakota: 52
