Right, and the facts are that Chicagoland had the third worst jobs losses in the nation.

Unemployment rate is over 12% in LA it's over 10% in Chicago.

I doubt LA's economy is more diversified.
Unemployment rate has little to do with relative economic strength.

And yes, obviously LA has a much larger and more diverse economy than the Rust Belt.

Chicagoland comprises the vast majority of Illinois.

And Illinois has the third worst economy in the nation.

And Chicagoland job losses are actually worse than those of Illinois as a whole.

Hold your temper. We would appreciate it if you didn't always attack everyone.

How would economic indicators for the state of Illinois not reflect conditions in the Chicago area?

The metropolitan population is 3/4 of the states population. The city proper is about 1/4. Cook County is a little under half the states population.

Unless there is a huge economic crash of agribusiness (people still need to eat), you wouldn't be able to have Illinois economy take a downturn without Chicago doing the same.
