New migration data

Forget SimCity, play with real data.  Über data geeks will obsess on a new interactive migration mapper from the gnomes at the Census Bureau. Here is what it gives for Allegheny County. Much the typical pattern; note net outmigration to retirement destinations, but some interesting net gains from locales in California:



Note for the overly wonked.  This is all from ACS data; so still not the IRS county to county migration data which has yet to be released for 2011 even. So more than a year behind what was the typical schedule through the last decade.  They say it still is coming someday, though I have not heard any specific timeline.

However, new tool is neat and you can zoom in.  What I don't quite get is that Allegheny county appears to be a net gainer of population from the center of shale development in other parts of the state.

Take the money and use it to move far away from the gas well?

Allegheny County is the site of a lot of the state's job growth, trumping any given shale county.
