White People Are Leaving West Virginia!

West Virginia has experienced a White population decline for several years. Plus, the Mountain State has an aging White population.  Plus. younger White people are not moving into the state.
West Virginia is one of a few states with a negative natural growth because the number of White deaths outweigh the number of White births. In the end, what determines the growth is net migration.  It increases when the economy is good, when the economy is growing in the state as well as the U.S., and goes down when the economy is declining.
White West Virginians need to increase their breeding while abstaining from race-mixing!

According to recent numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau, from July 2016 to July 2017, West Virginia ranked second highest in both numeric and percentage population decline. The Mountain State was one of eight states that lost population in that time frame. It was outpaced by nigger-infested Illinois for numeric decline and Wyoming for percentage decline.

U.S. Census Bureau estimates, from April 2010 to July 2016, show West Virginia lost 1.2 percent of its population, decreasing from 1.85 million in 2010 to about 1.83 million in 2016. Two other states lost population in the same period. Illinois' and Vermont's percentage of change were both negative 0.2 percent. West Virginia's neighboring states saw gains with Virginia as the top, gaining 5.1 percent.

West Virginia's White population has fluctuated since its peak in the 1950s. A statistical brief from the West Virginia Health Statistics Center said more than half of the Mountain State's overall loss from outmigration during a 50-year period, from 1950-2000, occurred from 1950-1960.
Population continued to drop through the 1960s but started to increase in the 1970s. This trend was reversed in the 1980s. In the 1990s, population and net migration both decreased, both attributed to a natural decrease, where deaths outweighed births, the statistical brief said.
Population once again increased from 2000-2010.

One of the many reasons (population increased) was because the economy was doing better in the state than in the nation.. If you pay attention to the flow of in- and out-migration, both declined in the big recession but the decline in the outmigration was much smaller than the decline in the in-migration.

In 2010, population started to drop. From 2010 to 2015, population declined from 1,852,944 to 1,841,053.

In 2013, there was a big drop in the demand for coal internationally as well as nationally for competition with natural gas. The state economy overall started to decline in terms of job growth. There were a lot of job losses. That continued until about 2016.

The WVU report expects the recent trend to continue, projecting the population to decrease even more through 2030. By 2020, the projected population is estimated to drop to 1,828,079, to 1,821,041 in 2025 and to 1,806,816 by 2030.

West Virginia also has an aging White population, which contributes to a natural population decline. According to U.S. Census data, West Virginia was the fourth oldest state in 2016 with a median age of 42.2. In 2000, it was 38.9 years.

West Virginia's  White birth rate is slowing, from an annual average of almost 33,600 live births in the 1960s to 21,400 in the 1990s. According to recent data from the DHHR, the number of births totaled 19,778 in 2015. Preliminary data in 2016 indicate the number of births was 19,059.

Very few states in the nation have negative natural change and West Virginia is one of them because White deaths outweigh the White birth.
