Cook County Loses More than 10,000 People, Most in Nation

City SkylineAccording to the Census Bureau Cook County lost 10,488 people, more than any other county in the nation. Counties in Texas, Florida and the Carolinas grew the fastest.  Much of the population change likely took place between 2007 (when the last census took place) and 2010, since then estimates of the city’s population change have flattened out.

For a more in depth investigation of what these population changes mean for the country overall, I recommend Lyman Stone’s article How Migration Changed in 2015.

    “The strongest growth in migration and population has been in southern and western areas, especially in suburbs.” The image that popped to mind was Aurora, Colorado, now with a population of about 350,000, up 25% since 2000.
