  1. Akron at 30 miles- 2,581,877 50 miles- 3,923,886 Those are huge numbers. Obviously this calls for a huge INTERNATIONAL airport for northern Ohio to be built north of the city with cool maglev connections so people in all 4 major areas of NEO could expediently arrive and depart the airport.
  2. So Cleveland gets a large reduction because of the lake. It would be interesting to see the data for Cleveland if the center was moved 5-10 miles south towards Akron. I would imagine numbers would be much higher and separate it from the other Ohio cities.
  3. According to Jones Lang Lasalle new Cleveland 2018 Skyline Report, One Cleveland Center is ten percent vacant. https://www.us.jll.com/content/dam/jll-com/documents/pdf/research/americas/us/JLL-2018-Cleveland-Skyline-report.pdf
  4. August numbers published: Cleveland 27k jobs year over year gain. Cleveland-Akron-Canton 35k jobs gained. http://ohiolmi.com/asp/CES/CES_GET.asp
  5. Hoping these numbers do not get revised downward in the coming months, but as of now Cleveland is having its most robust job expansion in seven years. It is also the best performing metro in Ohio as of June 2018. https://www.bls.gov/regions/midwest/oh_cleveland_msa.htm
  6. DEPACincy[/member] The 1-year estimates are wildly inconsistent if you trend them from year to year for the past 6 or so years. The 5 year estimates show a steady rise in bachelor degrees in that age cohort for Cleveland. Not as large a number as Columbus likely, but growth no doubt.
  7. I think workplace flows from county to county is a good indicator of regional connectivity and reliance. From the most recent 2009-2013 County-to-County workplace flow here are some key data points: Montgomery county (Dayton) to Hamilton County (Cincy) 2,780 workers Hamilton County to Montgomery County 1,469 workers Summit County (Akron) to Cuyahoga County (Cleveland) 36,200 workers Cuyahoga County to Summit County 16,505 workers As you can clearly see from the above data based on simple commuting patterns Cleveland and Akron are interconnected and should be considered in the same MSA. In fact, Summit would be the third highest county for workers to commute to Cuyahoga County behind Lake and Lorain. https://www.census.gov/data/tables/time-series/demo/commuting/commuting-flows.html
  8. If you access http://ohiolmi.com/asp/CES/CES.htm The seasonal adjusted numbers are much closer to the not seasonally adjusted numbers. I once emailed them why it was so different from the bls and if I remember correctly they attributed it to rounding but it didn’t really make sense. The Ohio labor market site also prepares reports in conjunction with the BLS so its confusing why their seasonal data is so different from that of the BLS.
  9. I work at Metro, but trained at the Houston Med Center. If I were a patient I would much rather have parks to observe and exist in than block after block of hospitals surrounded by concrete. Patients enduring health difficulties aren’t so much concerned about how urban their hospital is but rather feeling comfortable during a challenging situation. The Houston Med Center was very sober and unappealing. I think green space affords patients some peace. I’m all for urban density in residential and commercial areas but don’t feel hospitals should be responsible for providing it.
  10. The last time Ohio grew numerically that large from year to year was 1996. That happens to be the last year that the Cleveland Metro area achieved a statistically significant increase in its population. Fingers crossed.
  11. I have nearly given up on looking at the BLS and their adjusted numbers. They end up revising them anyhow months later to reflect the quarterly county employment numbers which are far more accurate. The ACE report from Crains is a solid resource and they published promising January employment numbers after a poor job performance for the area in 2016. http://www.crainscleveland.com/article/20170224/NEWS/170229873/ace-report-service-sector-keys-northeast-ohio-job-growth
  12. I put zero stock in a report (see below for part of the report) that lists Cleveland as 150th out of 150 cities for median income when adjusted for cost of living...even behind New York. Their methodology is severely flawed. Cleveland is plugging along creating jobs, the sky is not falling. Lowest Median Annual Income (When adjusted for cost of living) 146. Detroit, MI 147. New York, NY 148. Newark, NJ 150. Cleveland, OH 150. Hialeah, FL
  13. I was hoping for a larger turnout at the Indians game because of all the parade revelers downtown. However, everyone was exhausted (and many annoyed) after being downtown for at minimum 10 hours by the time the rally ended. Also, I would venture to guess some people would not even considering going downtown after hearing of all the traffic congestion. We only went to the Indians game (also spent by the day's eve) because the trains were so backed up. We left in the sixth inning which I normally would never do to my Indians simply because we were drained.
  14. Dirt was being moved at the site today. It looks as though this is finally a go.
  15. I think the worst part of this newest census estimate is the optics. It reinforces the "decline" of the rustbelt rather than highlighting many great things going on. Yes, greater job gains would help, but jobs are coming. I think a problem with whats going on now is a result of stagnate job growth in the 2000s when Cleveland was bleeding many more people than it is now. I think we are on the precipice of turning the tide and seeing consistent gains by the end of the decade so long as we are averaging reasonable job gains like we have been. Population growth, or lack thereof, is a main component to a growing economy. You need only look to Europe to see that Germany is doing very well as a country economically even though the population itself is declining. Additionally, Clevelanders, Pittsburghers, Buffalonians?, tend to look for outside approval and I think this increase in outmigration reinforces some negative feelings about our own city. As a former Pittsburgher, who has lived in the south, and moved to Cleveland, I can say that this area is the best for me. Lastly, the international migration number is a huge positive and continues to show Cleveland's global draw in comparison to neighboring cities. Lastly, Cleveland has the best drinking water imho, Houston's is the worst and they continue to have stellar population growth so its not that. Also, Houston is on a swamp and has little to none aesthetic qualities that attract people other than JOBs.
