DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - The U.S. Census says 86,000 people moved from California to Texas last year.

The Census says Texas was the top destination for people moving away from California.

A total of 691,000 people moved from California to another state in 2018.

A survey by UC Berkley says about half of registered voters in California say they've given "some" or "serious" thought to moving out of the state.

The survey says 71 percent of those people cited housing costs as a reason for wanting to leave.
