    41% of U.S. Counties Experience Population Decline

    Immigration May Be Our Salvation: 41% of U.S. Counties Experience Japan-Level Population Decline

    A new report released by the Economic Innovation Group has revealed an increasingly grim present and future for the United States, especially those corners of the oft-romanticized heartland, in terms of population growth. Our population has dipped to 80-year lows, with 80% of U.S. counties losing prime working-age adults (25-54) between the years 2007 to 2017.

    It’s projected that this trend will continue for 65% of counties over the next decade. Furthermore, 41% of U.S. counties (home to 38 million Americans) are struggling under rates of demographic decline resembling that of Japan’s.


    An increasingly aging population, fueled by population decline, poses an extreme logistical problem on multiple fronts. First, Americans must reckon with increased demand for competent geriatric care, a notoriously poorly regulated field to begin with. The priorities for an elderly population may also not be as oriented towards the radical change needed to combat catastrophic climate change. There’s also the potential for stunted economic growth, and as Moody Analytics’ senior economist Adam Ozimek notes in the EIG report, ”[D]emographic challenges … disproportionately [affect] economically struggling places. Economists and policymakers need to understand that these demographic problems are not merely an outcome of socioeconomic problems: They are also a cause.”


    A New York Times analysis by Neil Irwin noted how so-called “flyover states” are hardest hit by population decline, writing, “Many younger workers move to bustling urban centers on the coasts, leaving smaller cities and rural areas behind. Immigrants bolster the labor force but also disproportionately go to those same big coastal cities.”


    The solution? Immigration (cue a cheesy Hamilton reference)! Right as Donald Trump is declaring America “FULL” and threatening to close the U.S.-Mexican border, the EIG report’s authors are suggesting a visa directing immigrants to those parts of the country experiencing drastic population decline. The “Heartland Visa” would allow eligible communities to opt into the program, in which skilled immigrants could obtain visas to live and work in that particular area without being beholden to a specific employer.

    Survey: Pine Bluff No. 1 in population loss

    Posted By Max Brantley on Thu, Mar 21, 2019 at 1:06 PM


    • PAUL SABLEMAN/WIKIMEDIA COMMONS



    • NO. 1: USA Today used this Pine Bluff streetscape to illustrate the city, which topped a ranking of population decline among the country's metro areas.


    A survey reported in USA Today
    says Pine Bluff led the nation in population decline among the country's 382 metro areas between 2010 and 2017, based on Census data.

    The data from the survey on Pine Bluff:

    These population declines, or shifts if you will, are caused by a variation of things, least of which is fewer people. I've talked to quite a few blue collar folks that have relocated from New York to North Carolina over the years. They all say, without fail, they simply can't afford the cost of living in New York anymore. Furthermore, they're also sick of the snow and cold weather up North. We've also been hearing for years how younger folks are leaving the rural communities because there are no jobs due to factory closings, fewer family farms, etc. My point is, it's not a population decrease that is causing the majority of these shifts.

    Bringing in more immigrants is not the answer!
