U.S. CENSUS

  Northeast Ohio’s two biggest cities have continued to lose residents over the last decade. That’s one trend evident from the latest Census numbers released last week. For Ohio Public Radio,  WCPN's, Nick Castele has more.

This release allows us to compare two periods of time: the years leading up to the recession, and the years coming out of it. From 2005 to 2014, Cleveland lost 10 percent of its population. The decline in Akron was more modest, at 5 percent.
