Last week the U.S. Census released new population estimates. We covered the winners fairly extensively last week on the blog. This week, we turn to those regions that were hit the hardest – which regions lost the greatest number of residents? Just like last week’s "By the Numbers," we’ll show comparisons for large, medium, mid-sized, and small metros.
New Orleans, LA experienced the most dramatic loss in population, which is not surprising given the effect of Hurricane Katrina. But, what’s going on in metros like Pittsburgh and Cleveland? Why are these metros losing population so fast? What are these region’s doing to “plug the hole?”
