First Look at 2010 Census for City Neighborhoods
Posted on Wednesday, March 09, 2011 at 06:01 pm ET
This is a first look at the 2010 Census data released today and what it tells us about ongoing change within City of Pittsburgh neighborhoods.
A preliminary analysis of population change by City of Pittsburgh neighborhood is available as an excel file via this link.
Overall the City of Pittsburgh population declined by 8.6% between 2000 and 2010, but the magnitude of change was much higher or much lower across neighborhood. The largest population decline in the city was Garfield which saw it's population decline from 5,384 in 2000 to 3,675 in 2010. The South Side Flats, 946 gain in population, and Central Oakland with 744 new residents were the two biggest gainers.
We will append more maps of this data to this post as soon as they are available. Here is a first look at the population change over the last decade by neighborhood.

It will be interesting to see how your data looks by Council District. Redistricting will be completed by next year.

(1)The loss of population in non-public housing communities like Homewood need to be discussed.
(2)What impact did the denial of Section 8 vouchers in the city have on low-income residents?
(3) What price did some communities pay due to the emphasis on Downtown, Southside, and The Strip?
(4) What policies lead to a loss of 25% of the 250 year-old African-American population of Pittsburgh?

Thanks for your comments. We are actively putting out information as we process it. Additionally, we will be posting a new report on Homewood from new Census data and other property data we\'ve worked on over the previous year.
