(Chicago, IL)  Illinois population has been dropping by large chunks over the last several years, and new data released from the census shows an even further break-down. The county wide data showed that 81 of Illinois’ 102 counties lost population in 2021, with the biggest drop being 89-thousand plus residents in Cook County. Lake County lost just under 2-thousand residents. Neighboring McHenry County was the only one along the Illinois-Wisconsin border to gain in population…adding a little over 13-hundred residents.
