Among the 40 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas, Cleveland had the worst domestic net migration (meaning it lost people on net). Chicago was second worst, just edging out Detroit.
Maybe Mike Polk, Jr. can rewrite his hastily made tourism video, because “at least we’re not Detroit!” doesn’t seem to apply here anymore.
(Author’s note: Original title of the post was “Cleveland’s Main Export? Jobs, Apparently.” This was changed to better reflect the data, though lost people is usually an indicator of a city’s economic health.)
