Chicago loses population, could be surpassed by Houston

(CHICAGO) Disturbing news from the U.S. Census Bureau.
New census figures show Chicago lost nearly 29 hundred people last year, the only large city in the country to lose population.
The Chicago Tribune quotes experts who say if the trend continues, Houston could overtake Chicago as the nation’s third largest city in the next ten years.
The reasons most cited for the exodus are high taxes, high crime, and bad weather.
