Michigan was the only state to have a smaller population in 2010 than in 2000. Additionally, the Census shows that Detroit lost 25% of its population. We are shure to lose a seat in the House of Representatives.
However, some counties grew. My Ottawa County in West Michigan grew by 14%.
It seems as if a lot of the best minds leave the state. The smartest kids that I knew while in High School and at the University of Michigan are all out of state and I can't blame them, but it would be nice to have more jobs to keep some of them here.
I wonder if this will influence the University if it continues to be a long term problem.
