This week’s episode of The Aldercast is about exodus – one of the defining political issues in upcoming elections in 2018 and 2019. Chicago, Cook County and Illinois are losing population, but why? How much should we care? And what can we do to stem black population loss and changing federal whims on immigration? Demographer Rob Paral sheds some light on the issue.
