Loser: Youngstown, Ohio
Population decline 2000-2009: 7%

Like the other areas in the Rust Belt, Youngstown continues to suffer from decades-long population losses due to a dying manufacturing industry and a lack of jobs.

Since 2000, Youngstown has had a net loss of more than 40,000 residents as joblessness spiked higher than 14% in 2009.

Results:

* Will likely see a decline in federal funding from the $686 million collected in 2008.

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

NEXT: Loser: Buffalo, N.Y.
