This.

By the way, I just want to point out that the study doesn't provide any evidence that "the Northeast [is] losing population" as the OP's thread title suggests. The data from United Van Lines is about domestic net migration. The NYC area has long been an immigration hot spot -- NY and NJ have long had high immigration numbers (still top 5 in the US according to this) that offset their negative net migration numbers. Michigan and maybe Rhode Island are the only states that are actually losing population according to census numbes.
