Introduction
Allegheny County was created on September 24, 1788, and is home to some of the most prestigious health care, educational and cultural institutions in the world.

During the last 30 years, our region has undergone a tremendous economic and environmental transformation.

Allegheny County is home to some of the world’s leading businesses and organizations in the fields of advanced manufacturing, information & communications technology, health care & life sciences, finance & business services, education & research, and energy & environmental solutions.

And yes –proudly – we still make steel here.

We have worked hard to create an economic climate in which businesses and entrepreneurs may thrive, and our results are paying off.

Out of the nation’s 100 biggest labor markets, Pittsburgh is one of only 13 that have regained all of the jobs they lost during the Great Recession.

Throughout the economic downturn, Allegheny County’s unemployment rate has consistently been two percentage points below the national average, and our foreclosure rate has been among the nation’s lowest.

Statistics like this led Time Magazine to call Pittsburgh the “one economic bright spot on Main Street” in the midst of the recession.
