The 2010 census did not bring good news: Cleveland dipped below 400,000 residents. Akron dropped below 200,000. Our eight county region shrank slightly and the state posted a small gain, but not nearly as robust as the country as a whole. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll dig into the numbers and seek to discover who went where and why. What impact will the new population numbers have on Ohio and our region? And how will we respond?
