(How often do you see posts on here in regards to people moving here asking about AR, Helotes, Stone Oak, etc?) The increase in population on the Northside is probably due to transplants mostly.

Honestly I am not trying to argue with you here, I am just trying to understand how you make this kind of statement, where is the correlation study to back this up?
Wow, we said the exact same thing.

San Antonio is regularly named as one of the most economically segregated cities in the country by reputable sources.

On income segregation, San Antonio leads from behind - San Antonio Express-News

I feel like y'all missed the links posted by L210.

If people with rising incomes are staying on the south side then we would not be as segregated of a city.

You act as if L210 posted those links before we had this discussion. I see what you are saying though, you are assuming that non-northside folks with rising incomes are moving north based on how segregated this city is according to those links.

There is no data to show that is fact though.

They are not just moving north. They are also moving west. They are also moving to nicer areas on the south side. That said San Antonio in general has more nice areas on the far west side and north side than the south and east sides.

If social mobility is low in the city, which I don't know is the case, then there wouldn't be many people on the south side experiencing significant increases in wealth in the first place.

Social mobility in the U.S. is pretty low as a whole for a while now. SA might see higher rates due to folks from lesser means climbing the ranks in the military here but that wouldn't explain any Southside to Northside migrations as they are mostly out of towners.
