Arrow Pittsburgh

This is just a general topic that I plan to add to, and that everybody can add to if they want to.

Anyway, here's the employment data for the Pittsburgh metropolitan area in the last 10 years, not seasonally adjusted. I'm worried that whatever economic momentum Pittsburgh had before and immediately after the recession in 2008 is starting to wane. What's odd is, the Bureau of Labor Statistics revised the last six months of 2013 from a consistent +10,000 to +20,000 down to essentially zero.

Too bad the queries on that website are a pain in the ass, or I'd be able to do a comparison. Needless to say, I'm shocked.

I would remain confident that Pittsburgh is doing well. Estimates are difficult to determine. What 1 does know is all the activity that Pittsburgh is experiencing & that's all positive.
