Pew Philadelphia Releases New Interactive Jobs Dashboard

Posted by Pew Charitable Trusts on November 30, 2021

Pew’s Philadelphia research and policy initiative has released a new interactive tool, “Philadelphia’s Business and Jobs Dashboard,” designed to help economic development leaders, city officials, and the public track the recovery and health of Philadelphia’s private sector businesses and jobs.

Philadelphia’s recovery from the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic is a complicated and high-stakes journey for its residents, workers, employers, and policymakers. The city’s progress, including any growth, can be tracked by the ever-changing health of its businesses, the jobs they offer, the wages they pay, and what their customers spend. This dashboard provides nine charts on local businesses and jobs at each quarter or month, starting before the pandemic-driven shutdowns in March 2020 and continuing to the present. They are assembled from various data sources and will be updated quarterly. The dashboard also includes two other charts for reference: profiles of the businesses and populations in each ZIP code area before the pandemic.
