The PG's Moriah Balingit details a new report that the Pittsburgh region is attracting young people in addition to having more success in retaining its own, contradicting the notion that young adults flee the city looking for job opportunities elsewhere:
"The report, prepared by local think tank PittsburghTODAY, looked not only at U.S. Bureau of Census statistics about migration to the city, but also at their demographic profile gleaned from telephone interviews of 217 people aged 18 to 34 who were surveyed as part of a broader study. In addition, it looked at their viewpoints on an array of issues -- from education, to the environment, to race relations and public transit.
"The release of the report was timed to coincide with One Young World, a leadership summit that begins Thursday and will draw 1,500 delegates -- all under the age of 30 -- to the city from across the globe to attend seminars and discuss a wide range of issues, from global health to education."
