Pittsburgh immigration stats update

I don't think anyone has looked at this specifically as yet, but the most recent data on immigration statistics from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) are out and this is what the data says for Pittsburgh through 2013:


I know there are strong opinions out there to the contrary, but at least in this rather hard data there is only an elusive trend at most in there for Pittsburgh. But what has been a robust trend for Pittsburgh, the immigrants settling here from Asia again form a supermajority in the region.  Of the 2,645 new permanent residents in Pittsburgh in 2013, just a smidge under 2/3rds (65.7%) were born in Asia or Oceania.   Just 399 were born in Europe. Still, 2,645 is a relatively small number no matter how you want to benchmark it. Boston for one possibly unfair comparison came in at 23,837 over the same year. But how about Columbus, OH which had 4,868 new permanent residents in 2013.

Of course 'lawful permanent residents' refers to just one part of the immigration flow impacting most regions.  Many here on temporary visas are not captured by these numbers (but they would be captured when they convert there status to any permanent visa) and then there is the more complex debate that is too much to get into right here on the number of undocumented immigrants here in the region.

I'm not sure it is a trend, but holding aside the anomalous year of 2005 (what's up with that?), it looks like the rate has increased by around 25-30%. Of course that is from a very low base, and in general I guess the question is whether that is just a new plateau or whether it has potential to increase more.

Difference between PGH and peer 'interior' metros is that PGH is lagging behind on Americas immigration... and increasingly African.

Btw... interesting that Columbus attracted slightly more from Bhutan/Nepal than Pittsburgh in fy 2013. Hadn't heard of C-bus being a hub for that community.

Is there data on education levels of the various groups? I am guessing that most of the Asian/Oceania people are in the medical or engineering fields. Which leads to my guess of the big jump in '05.....Could that be the hiring binge for Westinghouse nuclear research center near Cranberry? I believe it is a Mitsubishi subsidiary which means there may have been a lot of transfers to Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh had more Asian immigrants in 2013 than Cincinnati, Cleveland, Hartford, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Salt Lake City and San Antonio, and only slightly fewer than Raleigh and St. Louis. The only major metropolitan areas with more Bhutanese immigrants were Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth and Columbus.

Surprised that the smaller Cleveland metro attracted more Indian immigrants than Pittsburgh.
