I actually looked at the Youngstown-Warren-Canfield metro and it's actually a great example of a large, shrinking metro, because there's hardly any outer suburbs or census tracts that are gaining. Everywhere around there seems to be losing population, whether it be slow or rapid. It's hard to find a large metro that's shrinking overall, even in metro Flint all the townships south of it around Gramd Blanc are gaining fast.

Detroit MSA only lost population from 2000-2010 and according to estimates have started to show a growth rate again. Genessee County (Flint), started turning into a commuter county for Oakland County/Metro Detroit sometime around the 2000's which has something to do with the population gains of its southern townships.

The subject is SHRINKING METROS not SHRINKING CITIES.....the Richmond metro is healthy, growing and vibrant and the city itself has made a huge turnaround in the last decade.

San Juan, Puerto Rico. The expanded CSA was put at 2,622,876 in the 2000 Census, but dipped to 2,582,746 in the 2010 Census. This was the opposite of the 2009 Census estimate (the final estimate before the actual 2010 Census results), which missed the population decline trend across the island and projected that the CSA number was 2,732,036. Those trends have probably continued since 2010.

I think that's the sharpest decline in a US metro area of its size.
