Regional population dropping at a slower rate

pghgenbwAccording to this article in the Post-Gazette, the population in The Pittsburgh Metro area is still dropping, but at a slower rate. This may possibly signal a turn around in the yearly mass exodus for our region. Keep in mind this is happening during one of the worst economic downturns in out history – so, maybe people are looking toward Pittsburgh again as their home.

Personally, SWB thinks it’s just because the pierogies have gotten better.

Update: Here is an article from USA Today that details a little about the trends affecting cities like Pittsburgh.
