The fastest shrinking cities in the US 14

Population in 2010: 305,704

Population in 2020: 302,971 

Known for being an industrial giant, you wouldn’t expect this Steel City to be affected by population decline, but even Pittsburgh isn’t safe from this factor. The dwindle in population is most likely associated with the city’s high tax rates that have skyrocketed over the years, prompting residents to move to other cities.
