Kansas losing population, Census figures show

March 30, 2014

— New census figures show that more people have been moving out of Kansas than have recently been moving in.

Census data released Thursday shows that from 2010 to 2013, Kansas lost about 10,000 people because of outward migration. The census also showed that Kansas gained more than 16,000 people from international migration over the last four years, but lost nearly 27,000 to other states, which resulted in the net loss of about 10,000.

The Wichita Eagle reports the numbers don’t reveal why people left.

Kansas was also among the bottom 10 states in the number of people who moved in from other states compared with the number who moved out during the 12 months ending July 1, 2013.

I know several fellow Olatheans who finally gave up and moved to MO as the 'rent' prices continue to rise. Not only are food, utilities and all around costs going up, MO is less expensive for housing.

I was approved to purchase a home, however decided to remain a renter as I couldn't do the maintenance and didn't want to be one of the causes for the next housing bubble, fear I am next for the move across the state line.
