First half of 2016 I was unemployed and lived in DE. Second half of 2016 I move to PA and was employed in PA. Do I need to file 2016 DE State taxes (given that I was a part-year resident and had income in 2016 even though I didnt earn while a resident of DE)?

Did you receive unemployment benefits in Delaware?  If you had income from any source (including unemployment benefits) while a part-year resident of Delaware, you must file a Delaware tax return.

Then you don't need to file a DE return.
