Since education makes a person more likely to leave your region, how do you justify your investment in human capital?
Why are immigrants skipping over cities like Pittsburgh (1.3% Hispanic) and Cincinnati (1.3%) in favor of fellow rust belt cities like Rochester (12.8%) and Buffalo (7.5%) and Cleveland (7.3%)?
Not sure I know the answer to the question of the day, but I would like to approach it appreciatively. We have La Jornada Latino here in Pittsburgh. One of the founders is a Pittsburgh native living in Cincinnati (my fellow BP '88 alum and good friend Brian Wiles).They publish in Cincinatti, Northern Kentucky, Dayton, Columbus, Detroit and Pittsburgh.
I wonder if this might have something to do with geographic size of the cities and migration patterns in the metro? I bring this up for two reasons, both of which are - admittedly - anecdotal:1) I much more regularly see Latinos in Robinson and Monroeville than I do within the city. If you look at some other ethnic minority settling patterns, you'll see the same - there are sizeable Indian population in Greentree, as well as Murrysville and Monroeville - much larger, as I can ascertain, than the city.2) In the case of Cinci, the Latino population in northern Kentucky (Covington, Newport, Erlanger, etc. - technically suburbs of Cinci) is far more visible.
