Sic Semper Census
Probably a lot to parse in that data when I have time. My quick look just at Allegheny County looks like the estimated population change between 2010 and 2011 is mostly being driven by an increase in population among those 25-44. Not much growth, maybe even some decline in children and decline in elderly (65+)... so the news from earlier in the year that Allegheny county might be growing of late looks to be in those prime workforce years. Reinforces my belief that it is a worker migration story.
PG is running a story on how the Borough of Zelienople in Butler County is appealing their census 2010 population count: Zelienople Census County Questioned . I had some long-ish comments on Zelienople's appeal in a a post here from February: The Politics of (really) small numbers. it is kind of an interesting question what is up.
The biggest news in Census land these days. The House of Representatives apparently introduced an appropriations bill that will defund the entire American Community Survey program and other long-running programs. Not replace them with anything. So in our data-driven world, one of the main sources of data will go away.
