Daily Data Dump
The Federal Reserve at the other end of Cleveburgh has a bunch of updated maps on Allegheny County foreclosure patterns and related online here.
As a follow up to this post on the latest from the Trulia on the debate over urban-suburban growth of late.... they have updated their post to include specific metro data. Pittsburgh as a region ranks near the top in terms of how much urban growth there has been compared to suburban growth. But it is entirely a relative kind of thing. Pittsburgh at #5 of 50 is showing up as nearly even urban/suburan growth. Most metros continue to have more suburban growth. Here is their table via previous link"
So not really local, but Amtrak ridership is up. I bet not here, but who knows? Anyone have local Amtrak data? I still think Lance Armstrong could outpace Amtrak service to nearby destinations.
Not data per se.... In Ohio the state is possibly looking at loan guarantees to encourage purchases of natural gas vehicles. What confuses me is this newsoid sent in from the NS peanut gallery.. if there is some impending rush toward NatGas vehicles... why does Honda need to offer new and bigger discounts on purchases of NatGas cars in California where regular gasoline is so expensive these days? Still looking for the first arms-length consumer purchase of a NGV in Pittsburgh.
