All of those are doing worse than Pittsburgh in population loss, a lot of them are doing much worse.

Your article based it's stats from 2015 and earlier. Pittsburgh had a bump in population in the early 10s but the trend has reversed.

Chicago is a major city, and will continue to be a powerful city, but in 20-30 years will it be better overall? It *might* be, but based on what I read and hear, it's a gamble and toss up...
Anecdotes vs. Census figures????

Wrong again. It has 2016 and 2018 numbers in there, I don't know how you could miss that.

So northern Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan must deal with some of the most expensive interstates in the country, while the I-70/I-65 corridor remains free.

The Republican controlled media in northern Ohio never raises this point and continues to endorse Republican candidates responsible for this tragedy.

Manufacturers dependent on east-west truck traffic, such as for just-in-time inventory, will avoid northern Ohio for many decades.

Columbus, Oh

Nashville,

Atlanta - Maybe. I think what made Atlanta attractive initially does not exist as much anymore.
I think you're right-- at least about Nashville and Detroit. Columbus not so much. Atlanta has already arrived.

The Raleigh/Durham area has huge potential and is on the cusp of something major happening. Since the metro area has just passed the 2 million mark, the area is starting to see more and more amenities flood in and this is only the beginning.

Austin is growing faster, but this area is doing quite well. It's benefit is that it is in probably the most beautiful southern state. It has nicer beaches and the mountains in the same state. High tech and improving.
South Texas beaches are nicer than anything in North Carolina when it comes to consistency in good quality water and weather.

You really have to be in the dark in your recruiting and consulting job to come to a conclusion like that about Chicago, and as was said before be pretty mistaken. Chicago continues to become more educated with more corporate headquarters;. and any population loss it is experiencing is not professional, but from less affluent AAs leaving the west and south sides for the south and suburbs. If you only became aware of this now because of some "digging" (and that "digging" was just some information provided to you in this thread ) then you might want to change professions asap.

Considering that there is a far greater awareness and undoubtedly higher profile associated with the Outer Banks than with the south Texas coast, I would deem that a rather bombastic statement.
