- A powerful descriptive analysis of the wealth flows in Allegheny County, this report provides timely and critical information regarding public policy issues affecting a region that includes the City of Pittsburgh. Understanding the wealth flows and economic interdependencies of the municipalities of this region is essential to making effective public policy choices about how to align municipal tax bases and state and local fiscal policies. This report provides evidence on how Allegheny County's 130 municipalities are interconnected, as people commute across municipal borders to work, creating interregional economic flows. This report is useful to community and business leaders who are engaged in meaningful discussions about what it means to be a region. The methodology and measures--the imported and exported earnings dependency ratios--contribute to the broader field of economics.
