Since 1960, Akron has lost more than 90,000 residents. According data released this week by the Census Bureau, the city has lost another 1,100 since 2010. But Akron has actually seen a recent, though slight, bump in population.

A new study looks at the impact of Akron’s influx of immigrants since the turn-of-the-millennium.

The report shows that Akron’s population decline has been slowed with the arrival of more than 2,000 immigrants in the city between the year 2000 and 2013.

The latest Census figures show both good and bad news for Northeast Ohio cities. Cleveland is still losing population, but at a slower pace, while some nearby cities are growing considerably.

  Northeast Ohio’s two biggest cities have continued to lose residents over the last decade. That’s one trend evident from the latest Census numbers released last week. For Ohio Public Radio,  WCPN's, Nick Castele has more.

This release allows us to compare two periods of time: the years leading up to the recession, and the years coming out of it. From 2005 to 2014, Cleveland lost 10 percent of its population. The decline in Akron was more modest, at 5 percent.
