People Are Ditching Chicago In Record Numbers As Windy City Leads U.S. In Population Loss

Tyler Durden's picture

In just the latest sign that things are about to get a whole lot worse for the city of Chicago, especially in their efforts to deal with that pesky little $130 billion pension problem, the latest population statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau reveal that people are abandoning the Windy City in record numbers.  Per the table below from Crain's, the population of metropolitan Chicago has now declined two years in a row, a rate of decline that is accelerating, with over 65,000 people choosing migrate to other safer areas of the country.

The metro area declines are heavily concentrated in Cook County, but show signs of spreading to outlying counties, too. For instance, the bureau estimates that DuPage County lost 3,000 people in the past two years, and that Will and Grundy counties had small population losses last year.

 

The bureau did not break down the data by municipality, so it's impossible to tell for sure if the Cook County decline was in Chicago proper, suburban areas, or both.

 

One particularly stunning figure: net domestic migration, with an estimated 89,000 more people moving from the Chicago area to other portions of the country in the past year than those who moved in.

DOmestic Migration

 

And while some "policy analysts" (a.k.a. "Rahm Emmanuel Drones") tried to suggest that the mass exodus from Chicago is just a reflection of the general migratory patterns afflicting all of the MidWest...

Liz Schuh, principal policy analyst for the Chicago Metropolitan Agency
for Planning, said the figures are "of concern for the region's
continued economic success."

 

"Residents often choose to stay in or migrate to a region because of economic opportunity and quality of life," she added. While the region has recovered from the recession, and indeed has the largest workforce since recording began, "that recovery has lagged our peers."

 

Others suggested that the region, like much of the Rust Belt, eventually will return to slow-growth form after those who wanted to leave during the recession but couldn't do so for economic reasons finally are gone.

 

"But data also suggest that African-Americans are now leaving the region at a significantly faster rate than whites, Paral added. That suggests that rising crime rates and the loss of jobs on Chicago's South and West Sides are continuing to encourage residents to look elsewhere for a better life.

...we would be willing to bet that it just might have something to do with those spiking murder rates..but that's just a hunch.

I hope they all move to the Hamptons, Beverly Hills, or MalibJew...

Unfortunately, they won't move to any of those places. Now that they have ruined chicago, they will spread out like locusts and ruin other small towns.

 

And Chicago is likely fucked if this is true. This will turn into a self reinforcing negative feedback loop where they keep raising property taxes to help their funding shortfall due to fewer people paying taxes which will only serve to drive more people out. Won't be long until they are like detroit.

The poor economy has nothing to do with the violence of Black gang bangers that protect the Jewish controlled drug trade that is found within Chicago.

 

Chicago is basically what a place looks like under Jewish rule. The cops protect those in charge, and their pet golem Africans do all the real hard work and the criminal stuff, and the rest of humanity that is unfortunate enough to be stuck there gets ran over, robbed, raped, and robbed.

 

I lived in that area long enough to know it was a shithole not worth saving until the criminals were pushed out.

Blacks moving to the suburbs again, right?
Remember in Detroit, they blamed the city's demise on Honkey moving to the Suburbs.
Letting "them" destroy themselves is whitey's fault.

Nobody wants to be responsible anymore.

Shitcago Blacks called up their relatives in the south:

How's the weather? Nice and warm

Taxes? Low

Jobs? Plenty of factories

Housing Costs / rents? Low

Neighbors? plenty of fellow blacks here than any other states

But it is republican? Yes, you come down here and save money then you can become rich republican too.

Chicago refugees, coming to a city near you soon!

I heard the Rothschilds made their first inroads into America in a small Midwest town known as Chicago...  Hmm, the details are escaping me, but not long after that, there were the Rockefeller oil barons, and the Harriman rail tycoons, the creation of the IRS and Federal Reserve...

Sounds like they never left.

They did from Los Angeles in the 80s, they moved to the Bay Area then their kids started up gangs.

I never saw the appeal.

Including their overrated pizza (go New Haven, CT).

When you add gang war on top of lake effect snow,  flat as a pancake, and hideous taxes.  And ORD sucks too...

Too bad Starbucks is hiring all those refugees instead of black American citizens.

Shameful. Why isn't Al Sharpton rioting over that?

Oh, thank you for that, Croesus!  I needed a good laugh.  Brilliant!!! LOL!

The people leaving aren't really the taxpaying types.  The people flocking here in droves, are most certainly the taxpaying types.  But, this kind of news doesn't make your clickbait social media feeds.

greenskeeper carl's picture

My guess would be a lot of them are people who worked for the city government and now realize how much further their pension will go not having to pay shitcago taxes.

AldousHuxley's picture

Even Obama ain't going back and Olympics said no way.

 

Rahm must have angered Obama so much that he got assigned there as a mayor.

 

look up why it is called "windy" city.

BarkingCat's picture

They should pass a law that they only get 100% of their pension if they stay in the municipality or at least the country.

If they leave, the pension gets cut by 50%.

 

It is a win-win for the municipality paying the pension and the people of the municipality that they will not move to.

I sure as hell would not want a retired parasite that will vote the Chicago way to move to my town  (if I lived in a small conservative town).

Let them stay and experience what they have wrought. 

Blankenstein's picture

Flocking here in droves?  You're full of shit. MORE MOVING AWAY THAN MOVING IN

 

"Through the 1990s and 2000s, Illinois saw what demographers consider normal rates of exodus for the state, about 50,000 to 70,000 more residents moving away from the state than moving in. But in 2015, the number spiked to about 95,000, and in 2015 it reached more than 100,000 people, according to census data."

I would guess much of the shit that left detroit went to ShitCongo.

I wonder how much organ harvest goes on with Rahm's zio goons as they have a daily plentiful supply of young organs.

Would you want those organs implanted inside you??

That is exactly what is happening.  My once quiet university town is facing rising crime, though most of the elected officials pretend not to notice, and the paper does its best to not cover the crime that is happening.  The county has had to expand the courthouse, and now is expanding the jail in order to provide housing for our incoming residents from Chicago.  The urban underclass is spreading all the way out to eastern Iowa, including Cedar Rapids and Iowa City. 

Chuck Walla's picture

Exactly. At first, it was Baby Momma's escaping their abusive gangbanger SO. Then they would get found and the big city boys thought it was a great place for crime. Except there's a lot fewer places to hide. Iowa sends tons of them to prison and its better time than Illinois prisons.  But Illinois gives day for day good time, so getting out early is real cool.

Gum on Shoe's picture

So right Carl.  I had lived in Davenport, IA for the past 8 years and recently moved.  Davenport is about 175 miles west of Chicago.  Large influx of urban population there over the years and weapons crimes have rocketed. It's turning into the Southside w/ out the good food.  There is a HUD voucher program I believe that helps to subsidize people to move from urban areas to more rural. I'm running out of fingers to point with.

Ah yes, paradise. Can't think of a more deserving place.

You people need to look at the LARGER PICTURE...

 

This is all part of the jew plan...

 

Just take a look at these 'TURNING INTO GHETTOS'... All strategic harbor locations for shipping & trade... (NY, Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, LA, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Ohio River, Milwaukee, etc.)... It's the jew plan to turn these cities into ghettos, then, buy the land on the cheap in those locations using the dollar counterfeitting machine they've installed...

They almost seem to have a death wish, and are too arrogant to know when to quit.

Suck it, Chosenites. You all just can't seem to understand that WE don't want YOUR world. The decent among you are always described as "self-hating"; they're smart enough to realize that your religion is why you get into trouble.

If they can print the money why would they care about the price??

Logan 5's picture
Logan 5 (not verified) BarkingCat Mar 24, 2017 2:49 AM

The price doesn't really make a difference. The factor in play is turning certain areas into socialist marxist shitholes.

 

- The jews never saw a socialist marxist shithole that they didn't like.

- The blacks, or illegals, are fine with living in socialist marxist shitholes

 

Whitey moves out, the place turns into a shithole by default, prices drop. So as I said in the beginning, 'price doesn't make a difference'. Whitey could also buy on the cheap and move back in with his wife & kids. But he'd have to use money that he earned. Contemporaneously ~ the same 'print the money' dynamic occurs in the opposite direction with high priced Manhattan real estate & other places. Whitey has a much harder time getting a job at Goldman Sachs, or producing movies out in Hollywood because of all the inbreeding. And even if he did get one of those gigs, he probably had to sell his soul to accomplish it. For many, their conscience overwhelms their dissonance. A few manage though, & they are the Clintons & Rockefellers of the world (& in some cases already, the underworld).

@Logan 5,

There is another perspective if you get off your 'Jew plan' fixation. 

There is no plan. The strategy is milking tax money out of the system. And it is done by dishonest politicians and organized criminals; some are Jews, but most are just run of the mill criminals. It happens at local, state, and national levels. Sure everything turns into a ghetto. It's NOT a plan. It is a result. 

BrownCoat's picture

Chicago was called the Windy City because of the windy politicians. It was later called "the city that works" during Daley Senior's time. It works well for the mafias that run the place. Chicago takes money from the rest of the state via the State Legislature.

Yes, you would leave.  Trumptards are on an equal intellect level as the worst and most impoverished Libtards.  Both these demographics are leaving Chicago.  Chicago is booming as a result.  You will not find this news on Facebook.  

Trumptards = Libtards.

Trump = Sharpton.
