(note these numbers are skewed by the fact that the census counted Slovaks separate from czecho­slovaks in 2000)

These numbers are for 2000 only:
Pennsylvania

2 percent of pop
     
Ohio
157,125
1.4 percent
     
Greater Pittsburgh
105,525
4.5 percent
     
Greater Cleveland
93,413
3.2 percent
     
(this is the metropolitan statistical area, which is a better reflection of the region's population because municipal boundaries can vary by region. For instance, the city of Cleveland covers a much larger area that the city of Pittsburgh.)
City of Pittsburgh
6,566
2 percent
     
City of Cleveland
8,402
1.8 percent
     
(all this shows is that fewer people in general live in the city of Pittsburgh than in the city of Cleveland. Note that although the number in Pittsburgh is slightly lower, the percentage of total population is actually higher).

By any relevant measure, City of Pittsburgh has the largest Slovak population.
