City of Detroit has massive population loss, according to U.S. Census

Residents of the city of Detroit are leaving in droves, according to U.S. Census figures released this afternoon.

The Detroit News reports:
The loss of 238,270 residents since 2000 is a sobering statistical stamp on a decade's worth of job losses, plant closings and foreclosures in a city that was home to 1.8 million residents in 1950. Detroit's nearly 25 percent decline in population was the most by far among the top 20 cities, with only Chicago showing a population loss of 6.9 percent.
