About the PA Scorecard
The Scorecard provides policymakers and the public with an objective, statistically-derived assessment of Pennsylvania’s business climate for attracting, growing, and nurturing private-sector economic activity. The Scorecard will provide an annual benchmark against other states and a historical record of performance.
The Pennsylvania Scorecard provides an accessible central location of relevant and timely metrics that are primary inputs to economic development. These data are influenced by state public policy and provide a collective assessment of decisions and actions that impact Pennsylvania’s position relative to other states. The data were chosen based on the consistency and transparency of the methodology used in their collection, the trustworthiness of the source, and the absence of indices and weighting. The data display Pennsylvania’s absolute and relative position consistently over time. Please note that due to lags in collecting and publishing data, some metrics contain data from the current year while others may lag two to three years behind.
