25% of American counties are dying

.

One in four U.S. counties have more deaths than births and more people are moving out than moving in.

Our economy has evolved from creating ghost towns to creating ghost counties. Local governments cannot sustain essential municipal services by taxing squatters and the homeless. I wonder which state will be the first to follow.

My money's on Michigan being the first state where a lot of counties go from densely populated to almost unpopulated. If the water crisis continues out west, look for California to start emptying out pretty quickly in at least the southern half of the state.
