Loser: Cleveland
Population loss 2000-2009: 3%

Cleveland is yet another member of the Rust Belt that has struggled to maintain its population since the 1970s, when it was an urban manufacturing center.

Since 2000, Cleveland's net population dropped by nearly 57,000. And despite efforts to diversify its economy, Cleveland's unemployment rate stands above 10%.

Results:

* Federal funding will likely slip below the $2.6 billion earned in 2008.

* Ohio could lose two of its 18 seats in Congress.
