32,000 Residents Depart Cook County, Illinois, In 2012

Lots of people leaving Cook County, Illinois, these days. Art Golab reported on the Chicago Sun-Times website last night:

Cook County’s population grew by 17,000 people in 2012, about .3 percent — but much of that gain came from immigrants, according to Census Bureau estimates released Thursday.

The figures showed that about 32,000 more domestic residents moved out of Cook County than moved in. But a net increase of 17,000 immigrants, along with a high ratio of births over deaths, contributed to an overall gain for the county.

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

Hispanic immigrants and more babies helped reverse last year a longer trend of declining population in the county. William Mullen reported on the Chicago Tribune website back on March 24, 2011:

While still the country’s third largest city, Chicago was the only one among the top 10 cities in 2010 to have lost population over the previous decade, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Likewise, Cook County, the nation’s second most populous county after Los Angeles, is the only one of 2010’s 10 largest counties to have lost population since the 2000 census. Chicago lost about 200,000 residents in the past 10 years and Cook County was down by 182,000.

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

No reason was given as to why all these people are leaving Cook County.

But I have a pretty good idea as to what a number of them might say.

  1. I did the math and it sounds strange. 32,000 left 17,000 immigrants came in and they got a .3 percent increase. Were the 17,000 people that moved in pregnant? 13,000 people came from somewhere real quick.

    Yeah, that sounds weird. Let me check into that and I’ll get back to everyone in a few days.
