Why are women and whites bailing on Chicago?

Accoding to U.S. Census data available at Metro Chicago Information Center (MCIC), Chicago’s female population will drop from 1,490,909 in 2000 to 1,389,787 in 2010.

The male population — sorry, guys — will increase from 1,405,107 to 1,478,607 over the same 10-year period, leaving the city with only a small net loss in population.

The non-hispanic white population is projected to decrease sharply, from 850,702 in 2000 to 774,441 in 2010.
