Census points to dramatic regional shifts

2010 Census data reveals dramatic shifts in Northwest Indiana and Northeastern Illinois’ population over the last decade. While much of the news coverage about the 2010 Census data has focused on the political ramifications of population changes, this new portrait of the region has a host of policy implications as well, from the need for workforce housing to impacts on traffic congestion. Over the next several weeks, MPC will offer snapshots of these regional shifts and analysis of how they will affect our work. Today’s post assesses how population changes in Northwest Indiana are informing regional redevelopment efforts.

    I don't believe those that dastaabe is available online. Try contacting the New State Historical or Genealogical Society or State Archives.Go to Rootsweb.com and GenForum.com message boards for surname Ashfield and Reed. Post query on those websites. Also go to NY State message boards for same request. My find someone already has it or knows where to get it.
