Permanent Papers for Pittsburghers

Not survey data, not estimates... the latest data just out from the folks at the Office of Immigration Statistics has the actual numbers on new permanent residents residing in Pittsburgh. I wish Clarke T. was still with us to update his book.  I suspect the cover image would have to change. Lots to ponder in the following trends:

I'd love to see that Asia/Oceania trend continue (not that I have any particular preference in the abstract, but it was always the most plausible source of serious immigration growth).

Who knew there were so many people moving here from St. Helena?

By the way, a little context:

New LPRs are down nationally, and in most large MSAs, since 2006. Asian LPRs are nonetheless up nationally since 2006, but only about 2.5%.

So the huge spike (percentage-wise) in new Asian LPRs is definitely unusual.
