A report from last year found that 130,000 more people left California than came in with the highest percentage of those residents leaving for Texas, where it is notably cheaper to live.

The Edelman survey also found that 63% of millennials in California are ready to leave. Most are obviously concerned about affordability. 76% of Bay Area residents surveyed said that high cost of living is a very serious issue.
