Chicago tops list of 50 cities Americans are abandoning

by Dr. Eowyn

Using stats from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Program, 24/7 Wall St. compiled a list of 50 cities from which the most people are moving away. The 50 cities are mainly found in Northeast, Midwest, and West Coast, especially in states like Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and New York.

Brookings Institute demographer William Frey says these cities have been losing thousands of residents due to migration, part of a long-term trend of moving from the Northeast and Midwest to warmer climates, but that the trend has increased in recent years.

Below is the list. Note that the cities are ranked in accordance with the number of population decrease due to out-migration. In some cases, however, despite out-migration, the city’s population actually had a net increase because of in-migration (by illegal aliens?) and births:
