We're Number One...

in terms of people moving out. More people moved out of Jackson County over the past ten years than any other county in southern Illinois. Anderson County was number two with a full quarter of the county's population decamping. In fact, Williamson County was the only one to add  any population and that a measly 700 people. Of course, Jackson and Anderson are in (good) company as 93 out of 102 of the counties in the state lost population. Even mighty Chicago lost 1.2% of its population

  1. This also limits the possibility for local recruitment to SIUC that will further its decline and leading to its change into a Center for Medicine, Car Technology, and Aviation leading to necessary dismissals after re-organization and another blow to the local economy.
