Census data shows people are leaving Illinois

(WSIL) — A recent article published by Business Insider uses data to prove what many people who live in our area have been saying for a while– people are leaving Illinois.

The article takes a look at U.S. Census information from 2010 to 2018 and breaks down the areas that are seeing the biggest losses of population in the Midwest.

Of the list of 20 Midwestern metro areas, nine are in Illinois– including the top three. Southern Illinois is also included.

Areas that are absent from the list include the Metro East and Champaign-Urbana.
