138 people moved to Pittsburgh from Provo-Orem... and ZERO went the other way?
yeah.. I checked that early on. Seems right in that it's in the data. I am guessing a single firm relocation of some kind with dependents. Though I have to admit you would think it is something we would have heard about. Sometimes with corporate moves it may reflect folks switching from temporary but long term residence to permanent residence. So it may not really reflect that many people moving all at once. Long ago there was some issues with where USAirways management folks were living, here or DC that mucked with both migration and employment numbers.but if anyone knows what may have been in Provo let me know. Is Novell still around?
Concerning inter-regional migration, any sense if certain regions are mostly responsible for the trend upwards from the 05/05 nadir?
Meant to write "04/05 nadir"
That 04/05 nadir coincided with Pittsburgh's job growth flat-lining while the rest of the country recovered from the 2002 recession (I'm sure the dehubbing of PIT had a bit part in that). It took until 2006 for Pittsburgh to generate any positive momentum in terms of job growth. And just as things were looking up here... boom... another recession. (Yes... we are setting some sort of record for relative performance above the U.S. average right now... but we're still LOSING jobs... and the total jobs gained this decade has already been wiped away)...Gotta admit... I find it wildly surprising that Pittsburgh has a migration deficit with Cleveland and Youngstown for the decade... Cleveland's economy has been in the dumps for a decade... and there is a strongly divergent employment population trend for the two metros beginning in 2000.
