Section 3: Regional Conditions and Trends (PDF, 4.87 MB)

Southwestern Pennsylvania is engaged in a transformation. After decades of challenges—most notably the contraction of the steel industry and the resulting declines in population and the prominence of urban centers—our region is recognized worldwide for its ability to adapt and renew itself through concerted action.

The region spans ten counties—Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Washington, and Westmoreland—and 548 municipal governments, many of which were formed around the local factories to provide services to the plants and workers. Geographically, the region covers 7,112 square miles and is situated in the southwestern portion of the state.
