One way to divide the state up is by MTA Region versus other parts of the state. The metropolitan region of the state continues to grow while upstate loses population. Back in 2010, 67.3% of the state's population was estimated to reside in MTA Region, while in 2016 it was estimated that 68.1% of the state's population resides in the MTA Region.

New York City is the fastest growing part of the state, while the Quarter Pounders (Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland), Long Island (Nassau, Suffolk), and Westchester have seen a slight growth in population. Upstate has seen a small decline each year in population, although it's decline is small compared to the growth in New York City.
