The seven-county Pittsburgh region lost 8,972 people between 2015 and 2016 according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates, the second worst decline in numbers among 382 metro areas measured, with Allegheny County losing each of the last three years by successively higher amounts. County Executive Rich Fitzgerald questions the methodology taken from 2010 Census and IRS forms to calculate births, deaths and relocations. He believes estimates contradict reality citing the region's home values increasing, over $3 billion in new construction annually, and broad labor shortages all pointing to population growth.
