Not really surprising, Its a trend that's going to be hard to reverse. I'd say give it a couple years.

Yes, these recent stats are disappointing, but they aren't the last pages in the book. Cleveland never ceased being a Midwestern contender for greatness, and once it gets up off the mat, look out! The powerful concept of NEO not only looms on the horizon--it's already here.

Actually, the news isn't all that bad when you put it in perspective. Cleveland lost a yearly average of 8,158 people 2000-2010. The last year only saw a yearly loss of just 2,360. While still a lot, it's a good 3x+ slower than the average of the last decade. Most large cities are seeing population growth accelerate or losses slow, so this is national trend, and it's entirely possible that the city of Cleveland will begin to register growth sometime between now and 2020, especially if the trends continue.

dude, why sugarcoat it ?

why not say : "gee, we lost only 22.9 persons a day" ,that looks even better

call it like it is :

"The new census numbers show Cleveland lost another 81,588 people, or 17.1 percent, since 2000."

now that's horrific

I'd think the city would rather lose 20K in a decade than 80K. It's not sugarcoating so much as taking it as a positive trend.

Cleveland lost most of its' population starting right after WW2. The factories began moving South, mainly TN and KY. Detroit's housing stock, or what's left of it, is in deplorable shape. Detroit was anchored by the auto industry and as city areas declined, residents flocked to the suburbs. I had relatives in Detroit, who, up until 1958 lived on W. Euclid between 12th and Woodrow Wilson. In 1967 the Detroit riots broke out on 12th St. After that the financially able fled the city in droves.

Detroit is still anchored by the auto industry and suppliers. Cleveland's diverse economy spared it from becoming like Detroit. I would say, as a Cleveland native, Cleveland has a better chance of reviving city living since it's housing stocks
are not in general shambles like Detroit's.

Cleveland is more like Buffalo than Detroit.
