I'm curious... since Cali had 37 million residents 10 years ago and 40 million now... how is that an exodus?
Whats your timeframe?
1 million residents, gone
Between 2007 and 2016, some 5 million people moved in to California and 6 million people moved out to other states -- a net loss of about 1 million residents, the report relayed.
An exodus is a mass departure of people, and California is experiencing a mass departure of upper middle class, and the young poor, while immigrating many more unskilled laborers, and high paid workers, its Elysium.
The west coast is very expensive... but anything good usually is.

No its not, its only expensive in certain areas, in other areas its cheap it has to be, because most live in poverty, CAlifornia is Elysium, you probably live in a bubble.
Middle class is disappearing in California as wealth gap grows
After factoring for costs of living, California is the poorest state in the union. An average of 14 percent of Americans live below the poverty line by census measures. Compare that with the 19 percent of Californians who live below the poverty line and the situation is clear. The census measures factor in housing costs and wellbeing with programs like food stamps and housing assistance. Altogether, the state government has made life for poor and middle class Californians nearly unbearable.
Too bad you don't know or understand what Exodus means, put your head in the sand, and count the really rich and really poor moving into the state as "equivalency", if you do, you probably live in a bubble.
