Demographically Speaking, Cleveland Is Outperforming Chicago

Future looks brighter in Cleveland than in Chicago at Pacific Standard magazine.

Theme: Ironic demographics.

Postscript: Besides the replication problem, there are other issues with the Chicago/Cleveland comparison. Given how the brain drain/gain is counted in each newspaper story, Chicago is to Cleveland as apples are to oranges. However, the overall ironic brain drain in Cook County and ironic brain gain in Cuyahoga would seem to be valid. Richey is still sifting through the Cleveland data. The trends are shockingly good.
