Philadelphia Economic Index 2001-2010

At the request of the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation, the Economy League developed the Philadelphia Economic Index, a tool for measuring economic performance in Philadelphia.


This is the 4th publicly released volume of the Philadelphia Economic Index and covers the period from 2001 through 2010. The Index combines data from 15 individual economic indicators to create a single numerical series useful in evaluating economic trends over time. The components are clustered into four important categories: Employment & Income, Business Activity, Real Estate and Moving People.
