Just Released!  The New Pittsburgh Region Business Investment Scorecard

by on May 22, 2018

A wise statistician once famously said, “In God we trust; all others [must] bring data.”

That’s what the Pittsburgh Region Business Investment Scorecard is:  a data-based annual snapshot of economic development activity and job creation across southwestern Pennsylvania.  Year after year, stability through diversity continues to define the Pittsburgh region: an economy built on five strategic industry sectors that play to the region’s strengths, representing mainstay and emerging industries.

The just-released 11th scorecard features 258 total deals tracked in 2017 and $5.5B in CAPEX, the third highest amount on record.  Which sectors are the deal magnets; where are the high-wage jobs and which sectors are creating and retaining the most jobs?  You’ll get answers to all of these questions – and more insights – in our new report.
