    Interesting stuff. By the way, I don't agree with the idea above that the reason Pgh lags in Latin American immigrants is because it is not blue-collar enough. As can be seen in the above numbers, two of the regions that have the highest numbers of Latin American imigrants are DC-Baltimore and Boston, both of which are very white collar areas. I actually think blue collar populace and Latin American immigrants are inversely related. Not to stereotype, but many Latin American immigrants tend to do blue collar jobs. Since there are realtively more blue collar people in Pgh than in Boston or DC, there aren't many openings for Latin American immigrants to fill up. By contrast, there is a dearth of blue collar laborers in DC and Boston. Hence, the rise in Latin American immigrants.
