Year to year ending July 1, 2016 in Baltimore, the population dropped 6,738 to 614,664.

Births outnumbered deaths in Baltimore, 8,654 to 6,871, and 3,402 people moved into Baltimore from foreign countries. But 11,008 people moved out of Baltimore to other places in the United States.

Link didn't work.

 

How many of those births are to people who don't live in the city, or do births only count for city residents regardless of where the child is born?

It must not be affecting school enrollment.  As they are begging, demanding more of other people's money.  Which is strange as it has been noted several times that they get much more money than all but one school district.

Black flight, not white, has been the engine of Baltimore's population loss over the past 15 years.

Between 2010 and 2015, estimates show the city's white, Hispanic and Asian populations actually growing, making up for a continued loss of African-American residents.

Black people have gotten smarter. Until the schools are fixed(and I'm not talking about more money) , black flight will continue.

Suggs has signed. I've never been so happy to be wrong

Don't blame me, I voted Bob Barr:cool:

Amazingly, peak enrollment was in '69, with 193,000.  Obviously as the population shrinks, so do the kids, but since the city schools often fake actual enrollment, it's not possible to get an accurate figure.

 

 Claiming that hundreds of kids are in the seats when they're not seems SOP. And this is how tax dollars are allocated.

That is the other jurisdiction that gets the most state money for education.  PG County has really gone downhill since the sixties/seventies.  What used to be nice shopping centers look like war zones now.

People will always come and live there. The poor who can't afford to leave will remain there. Young professionals who aren't raising a family will continue to come where their jobs are.

IF I could sell my house for what the City appraises it at for their taxes and IF I could afford a house in a county not that far out for that same price I'd be Gone in a NY Minute. The Numbers just aren't there so I'm stuck.

Some may, others move to Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, Howard, or other places, just like white people. Imagine that!

Baltimore is on the water. Maybe that's what's causing the shrinkage.
