Decline and fall: Chicago area loses population for third straight year

Good people in the Chicago area are disgusted with rife corruption, rampant cronyism, and sheer incompetence among the politicians that are running America's third-largest metropolitan area into the ground.

Oh, then there is the crisis of runaway rampant crime.

From AP:
The Chicago Tribune reports that data released Thursday show Cook County lost more than 20,000 residents in 2017. Data also show that about 13,300 residents left the Chicago metropolitan area, which includes the city of Chicago, its suburbs and parts of Indiana and Wisconsin.

The metropolitan area has seen declines in population in recent years. It lost more than 11,000 residents in 2016 and nearly 3,400 residents in 2015.
Of the nation's top ten metro areas only Chicago lost residents.
