The University of Illinois at Chicago would look at where and how much depopulation is occurring throughout Illinois, including the socio-demographic attributes and accessibility needs of those who remain. Based on this data, the researchers would estimate the likely impacts of the problem in the short- and medium-term, and provide recommendations about how local governments could lessen these negative impacts.
