CHICAGO — Chicago has lost about 175,000 residents since 2000, but that population loss isn't spread evenly in the city or among racial groups.

Much of the population loss has been concentrated on the mostly black South Side, while there's been growth around Downtown and parts of the Northwest Side.

Between 2000 and 2014, the black population dropped about 19 percent citywide, and the white population decreased about 4 percent.

Meanwhile, the total Asian population increased about 24 percent. The number of Hispanic residents remained relatively stable, increasing 4 percent, though long-standing Hispanic enclaves in West Town and Logan Square saw massive drops in their Latino populations.

Use the map below to see how the population and racial makeup has changed throughout the city's 77 community areas since 2000.
