Ouch! That smarts. Michigan is the only US state to lose population since 2000.

Michigan lost .6% of its population between 2000 and 2010 making it the only state in the US to actually decline in population since the last US Census.

On the down side, we're losing a congressional and some Federal funds.

On the bright side, it's easier to find a parking space and housing within walking distance to Lake Michigan is very reasonably priced.

Oh please god let Bill Huizenga's seat be the one to go, oh please oh please oh please.

Conversely, US population grew by 9.7% and Nevada saw a 35% growth in population. As it turns out, Nevada is the only state in the US to have a higher unemployment than Michigan. That's what happens when you steal our unemployed, Nevada!!! We're watching you.
