They come to Pittsburgh

Some have asked for more than the latest count of Irish-born Pittsburgh residents.

Here are some estimates of foreign-born residents of the city of Pittsburgh reported in the 2008-2012 American Community Survey. Again, this is ACS based count data with pretty big margins of error. These are places of birth for the identified countries with the most foreign-born residents in the city of Pittsburgh.

 China 3,614
 India 2,974
 Italy 1,010
 Korea 1,010
 Japan 781
 Mexico 617
 United Kingdom  580
 Germany 526
 Canada 501
 Russia 451
 Poland 425
 Philippines 400
 Turkey 352
 Ukraine 311
 Nigeria 279
 Saudi Arabia 264
 Trinidad and Tobago 232
 Vietnam 220
 Colombia 216
 Jamaica 215

Lots have changed even from when Clarke was able to write this:

Asian wasn't that surprising but the sheer number of Chinese is. I wonder if the community could emulate what the Italians accomplished in Bloomfield with the Court Place/2nd Avenue former China Town. It is such a shame the city never encouraged that.

Speaking of China, is the ACS run by unreconstructed KMT guys (or Maoist) or did fewer people from Taiwan move here than did from Jamaica?

Census agglomerated the various 'China's' and I just put in the one value. But there is data there for Taiwan and Hong Kong by themselves.
