Illinois Loses People, No Longer Fifth Largest State
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois’ exodus of people is now very visible. The latest report from the U.S. Census Bureau says that the state lost over 33 thousand people since July of last year, dropping Illinois to the sixth largest state in the country. Pennsylvania is now larger. Just over 12-point-eight million people live in Illinois. That’s down by almost 100 thousand since 2013.
