The history of Allegheny County reflects the history of America. Settled early, the county’s past is packed with exploration, innovation, tradition, and historic accomplishments.
From its industrial roots, Allegheny County has developed a thriving, diverse economy that provides an opportunity for all. It has become a leader in health care, finance, education, manufacturing, arts, and culture, and is home to emerging sectors such as robotics, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, and clean energy. That’s led to an abundance of jobs in this region – and it’s not just us saying that.
For the second consecutive year, the online job search site Glassdoor named the area as best in the country for jobs, and it has the nation’s third-best annual growth rate in high-tech employment. In 2018, the region’s unemployment rate reached its lowest level since the 1970s, and many who live in the county are making more money, too. Since 2012, the median household income has risen at nearly double the rate than it has nationally.
