Cordele Among Fastest Shrinking Cities in US

Share with friends

CORDELE, Ga.— One report suggests that Cordele may be among the fastest shrinking towns in the United States, along with Gladeview, Florida and Selma Alabama.

Public charts show that the city’s population has been in steady decline since the early 2000’s (with the exception of a brief growth in 2011).

This report comes in conjunction with population trends that show more and more people leaving small towns for cities with more job opportunity.
