Back to the City, Part II: Chicago

Of course, there's been a lot of chatter in the blogosphere about Chicago losing population- but what you won't read as much about is where Chicago gained and lost population.

Charts are at

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/ct-met-census-new-map-20110225,0,7106678.story

If you don't feel like clicking the link, here's the summary:

Downtown Chicago gained lots of population.

Neighborhoods far from downtown lost population.

Again, the evidence suggests: even in population-losing cities, people want more urban living, the more urban the better.
