You can check out these numbers for yourself around the city here. That's where I got this data from. The map above is a screen shot from that link I provided.

Lee Bey has already started a discussion about Chicago's population loss and whether or not Chicago should be a more populous city. The discussion over census results had started ever since some statistics trickled in last week.

Hat-tip for the map goes to Capitol Fax and you can also read these items from there as well as they are regarding today's municipal election.
