North Carolina has had a lot of residents leaving since the recession hit, according to data released Tuesday.
The numbers show that the number of people leaving the state is up almost 10% from the same time last year.
The data comes from the National Association of Counties, which tracks how people are moving out of the state.
According to the data released, there are 1.65 million North Carolinians living in the county of Columbia.
That’s up from 1.5 million people in the previous year.
Of the total, 1.25 million are moving away from the state each month.
The figures show the state with the highest number of departures from the North Carolina state is Greene County.
The county of Chapel Hill, the next most populous county, has about 1.2 million people.
The rest of the counties in the state are in the bottom two.
About one in four people leaving North Carolina from December through March are moving to other states, according the data.
The largest percentage of departures are from North Carolina, with a rate of about one in three people moving out.
The state’s population has declined from an estimated 8.1 million in 2000 to 6.8 million today.
The North Carolina Department of Economic and Community Development released a report earlier this month estimating that the state lost about $3.6 billion during the recession.
That figure is more than half of the estimated $2.4 billion the state received in tax breaks during the same period.
It is also more than twice as much as the state spent during the entire recession, which ended in January 2009.
