More on CIty School District Decline

Still thinking of the Pittsburgh City School District decline. I pulled another time series from the NCES CCD data for total enrollment of students in all Allegheny County. Then I just indexed both the city school district and county numbers so that both are 100 in 1987 and then run out the trend. This is what you get.

I didn't add it in here, but the Allegheny County trend actually comes in slightly better than the suburban counties taken together which is kind of interesting as well... and if you were to calculate the Allegheny County net of City trend, it is remarkably flat compared to the city proper.
