Loser: Buffalo, N.Y.
Population loss 2000-2009: 4%

Buffalo is another older industrial city where the population has been declining since the 1970s. Since 2000, the western New York city has shed more than 46,000 residents.

Home to manufacturing plants for Ford and General Motors, Buffalo was hit hard by the auto industry collapse. Unemployment peaked at 9.6% in February 2009 and now stands at 9.2%.

Results:

* Federal funding will likely slip below the $2 billion earned during 2008.

* New York could lose one of its 29 Congressional seats.

NEXT: Loser: Pittsburgh
