Other cities in the Midwest seem to be growing except Chicago. Detroit and St. Louis could be thrown in there too. What's the issue? Could Chicago continue the decline below 2,000,000 someday?

I think Chicago's population will hover around 2.5 - 2.8 million for the next couple decades. Houston will definetly replace Chicago as the 3rd most populous city in the US within the next 10 years.

The US Conference of Mayors still sees a BETTER THEN THE NORTHEAST Growth for Chicgoland to come next 30-yrs.

Population Growth in the Next 30 Years (US conference of Mayors study)

METRO............................................. ..... 2016 millions.....2046 # Chg...... % change
New York-Newark-Jersey City, NY-NJ-PA -------- 20,181 ----- 20,705 ------------ 2.6
Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA ----------- 13,347 ------14,863 ----------- 11.4
Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, TX. ------------------- 7,246 ------11,383 ----------- 57.1
Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land, TX ---------- 6,803 ------10,628 ----------- 56.2
Chicago-Naperville-Elgin, IL-IN-WI ----------------- 9,517 ------10,280 ----------- 8.0
Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell, GA -----------------5,804 ------- 8,629 ----------- 48.7
Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach, FL ------ 6,090 ------- 8,101 ----------- 33.0
Washington-Arlington-Alex, DC-VA-MD-WV --------6,147 ------- 7,851 ----------- 27.7
Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, AZ ----------------------- 4,678 ------- 7,847 ----------- 67.8
Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario, CA --------------4,518 --------7,155 ----------- 58.4
Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD -- 6,071 ------- 6,309 ----------- 3.9
San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, CA --------------- 4,692 ------- 5,602 ----------- 19.4
Boston-Cambridge-Newton, MA-NH ----------------- 4,799 ------- 5,328 ----------- 11.0
Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, WA ----------------------- 3,804 ------- 4,928 ------------29.5
Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington, MN-WI ---------- 3,556 -------4,264 ------------19.9

Taking a broader look, population will grow by over 25% in 127 metro areas, over 50% in 36, and over 70% in 8 over the next 30 years. By 2046, 72 metros will have a population exceeding 1 million, compared to 2016 where only 53 achieved this feat. And by 2046, five metros will have over 10 million people – whereas just 2 were that large 30 years prior.

There is no reason Chicago's growth will stay more level then not. Even here it is seen as growing more then NYC metro and Philly's. But the Midwest could very well rise again even more and the Sunbelt slow in future decades?

NYC metro will definitely grow by more then 600,000. And the Minneapolis area will have gained more then that.
