U.S. Census Migration Report: WI Lost Nearly 2K Residents to MN in Past Year

Printer-friendly version

That "giant sucking sound" you hear is the sound of people leaving Wisconsin and moving to Minnesota.

According to the latest U.S. Census state-to-state migration report, 9,352 more people moved out of Wisconsin than moved into Wisconsin and a large share of those leaving-- 1,972 to be exact-- are going to our next door neighbor, Minnesota.

Most people in Wisconsin would hate to suffer the embarassment of becoming a Gopher and this bucks a national trend of people moving from colder to warmer states.  In other words, people in Wisconsin are so hard-up that they're willing to move to Minnesota!
