Early estimates show Cuyahoga would remain biggest county, but suffer biggest numerical and percentage losses
Estimates will be supplanted by firm numbers at the end of this week.
by WKSU's M.L. SCHULTZE


Web Editor

The official Census numbers due out this week are expected to affirm what a decade of estimates suggests: Cuyahoga and Mahoning counties will be  the biggest population losers in the state. And Medina County will be one of the biggest gainers.

 

The official numbers will be released Thursday or Friday and will help determine everything from how much state and federal aid counties get to just which areas will be targeted when the state consolidates Congressional districts next year. 

 

Ohio is losing two Congressional seats.

 

The 10-year Census estimates show that Cuyahoga County is expected to have lost nearly 125,000 people since 2000, most of that in the first half of the decade. That’s means both it and Mahoning County will have lost nearly 9 percent of their populations -- the most in the state.

 

What growth Ohio saw is likely came primarily in the suburban areas in central Ohio around Columbus. But included in the top 10 growth areas is expected to be Medina County, with a climb of more than 15 percent. In fact, if the estimates hold, Medina will have gained almost exactly the same number of people that Mahoning County lost.
