NPR peering into the Rust Belt

Check out NRP Monday morning when they have scheduled a piece talking about the history down in Homestead among other post-industrial, or soon to be post-industrial, towns. See: Factory And Auto Towns Shift Gears that is slated to air Monday AM on NRP's Morning Edition. People do love to come and visit Homestead, almost as much as Braddock of late. Reminds me of some other public radio coverage here including Global 3.0.
Also note that there is a complementary audio piece that will run on Cleveland Public Radio Monday as well. See (or listen to later on) to another version of: What Pittsburgh Can Teach Us. Looks like one of the guests is the reporter from the Cleveland Plain Dealer who wrote on us a few months ago... and who was laid off from the paper the next day. Looks like he landed on his feet.

I also have an animated GIF graphic which shows some of the history at the Homestead/Waterfront site.


Which is a good foil to update my Rust Belt watch.. Some of this data was revised a fair bit for months in 2008. Cleveland's unemployment rate trend over the last year now looks awfully flat over the next year. Not quite sure about that. But here is what it looks like. Obviously upward movement in our unemployment rate, but the Detroit freefall continues. The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for Detroit came in at 11.9% for January. Their raw number is at 13%!

Seasonally Adjusted Unemployment Rate: Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Detroit 2000-Jan 2009

But I have no idea what to make of this.. This is the comparison of Pittsburgh and Charlotte, NC

Seasonally Adjusted Unemployment Rates: Pittsburgh and Charlotte, 2000-present

What's the punch line? Is Charlotte the new Rust Belt?

I'm guessing Homestead get covered because on the one hand, you're got the rust belt angle. On the other hand, you're never more than 2000 ft from a latte or a fresh oyster.

Could you add a third image of the Waterfront--present day--to the GIF?

one of the reasons Cleveland's unemployment rate looks pretty flat compared to Pittsburgh's recent rise is that Cleveland's labor force population has contracted severely while Pittsburgh's labor force has grown at a greater rate than any other time over the past 15 years. Pittsburgh has started to lose jobs... but the total has been quite minor compared to Cleveland.
