As of 2006, New York was the third largest state in population after California and Texas, with an estimated population of 19,306,183.[2] This represents an increase of 329,362, or 1.7%, since the year 2000; it includes a natural increase since the last census of 601,779 people (1,576,125 births minus 974,346 deaths) and a decrease due to net migration of 422,481 people out of the state. Immigration from outside the United States resulted in a net increase of 820,388 people, and migration within the country produced a net loss of about 800,213

New York is a slow growing state with a large rate of emigration to other states, especially Florida and Arizona. New York state is a leading destination for international immigration, however. The center of population of New York is located in Orange County, in the town of Deerpark.[3] New York City and its six suburban counties have a combined population of 12,626,200 people, or 65.67% of the state's population.
