Fewer people are living in New York State, although it may not be that noticeable.

According to the latest census figures, New York saw its population drop by about 1,900 between July 2015 and July 2016.

While that's only a decrease of .01 percent, it's the first time the state's population has fallen since 2006.

More than 191,000 people in total left the state during the year ending on July 1.

That number was offset by the fact that New York led the country in foreign immigration and had more births than deaths.

New York has also lost nearly 850,000 people over the past six years, the most of any state.

City residents tell us they have plenty of reasons for staying.

New Yorker: My family is here. My job is here. It's a great place. There's so many things to do.
Q: Nothing like New York?
New Yorker: Nothing like New York.

"What keeps me here is the job, the work. You can make a better living here in New York City. It's a great opportunity here," said another New Yorker.

A number of possible reasons have been given for the state's population decline, ranging from high taxes to the weather.

The state's current population is estimated at more than 19.7 million.
