Blog 1: Decline in California Population
— The Sacramento Bee (@sacbee_news) August 31, 2015
- This article highlights the shift in California populations following the recession and housing bubble. I chose the article because the loss of residents reflects a net loss of $26 billion in state revenue, which affects the entire state’s economy.
- The information located in the tweet is new tax return data collected by the IRS over the last decade.
- The article claims economic hard times most likely contributed to the population shift, but how would they have factored that into research? If migration data lags two to three years, how can we be certain that this is an accurate portrayal of all residents?
