Economic Development Within the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area, Hardback Book

Economic Development Within the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area Hardback


This book focuses on economic relationships within the eight counties in the Philadelphia Primary Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Long-term economic developments, changes in socioeconomic profiles between 1960 and 1980, and patterns of employment are examined on a county by county.

Special attention is given to the spread and growth of employment in high-technology industries, the interdependencies between jobs and residents in the city and suburbs, and the roles of federal and state aid to the region.
