and again migration....

Destinations of Outmigrants from Pittsburgh 1995-2005
just something I am playing with and clearly a work in progress. I will have to cross-post this over on Pittsblog since it relates to the Pittsburgh Manifesto. This should fit in with all the obsession over population/migration in the news of late. The figure above is an animation of where people leaving Pittsburgh over the last decade have been going to. (yes, it needs a legend.) It's kind of remarkable in just how consistent the pattern is year over year. That Ravenstein fellow was onto something.

Having stared at the map to the point of hypnosis (could you include a weight loss sound track with it?) I am interested in the fact that our neighbors from Illinois to Norfolk to Boston have benefitted the most. (As Ravenstein predicted) .

Could you do an enlarged Midwest/MidAtlantic map?

And what was the attraction to Cleveland in '95?

It was probably because of Jacobs Field.

Sorry, couldn't resist.
