More people are leaving California than coming, and it is the poorest and least-educated residents who are leading the exodus, according to a new report from Beacon Economics and the independent nonpartisan organization Next 10.

California saw a net loss of 625,000 residents from 2007-2014, and 469,800 of those people did not have a bachelor's degree. The vast majority earned less than $30,000 a year, lured away to cheaper states like Texas, Oregon and Oregon.

Angelenos and San Franciscans know their housing is insanely expensive, but California on the whole has some of the most expensive housing in the US, and that's driving many poor and middle-class Californians out, says a new report from Beacon Economics and released by Next 10, a nonprofit group founded by Bay Area venture capitalist F. Noel Perry (via the San Gabriel Valley Tribune). In the years between 2007 and 2014, "625,000 more people moved out of California to other states than moved into California from other states."

Three new studies show that although California has one of the highest rates of job growth in the country, its cost of housing and high-wage jobs could push lower earners out of the state as they seek someplace more affordable.

The three reports – Current State of the California Housing Market, California Migration and California Employment by Income– were commissioned by San Francisco-based nonprofit Next 10 and prepared by Beacon Economics.

So, as it turns out, back in June 2014, California’s labor market finally recovered all of the jobs lost during the Great Recession, according to a report by Next 10.

Next 10, if you've never heard of them, employs research from leading experts on state issues and creates a portfolio of educational materials. They just got around to finalizing the crunching of the data, along with Beacon Economics, which is one of California’s leading economic research and consulting firms.

In spite of the fact that California boasts some of the highest wages in the nation as well as one of the fastest rates of job growth, high housing costs are driving many people out of the state.

The Los Angeles Daily News reported Thursday that a study by Beacon Economics, a Los Angeles research and consulting firm, said 625,000 more U.S. residents left California between 2007 and 2014 than moved into the state. Many former residents ended up in Texas, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Washington.
