Overview

UCSUR publishes the Pittsburgh Economic Quarterly (PEQ) to support organizations and staff involved with economic development throughout the region. PEQ highlights the important economic and demographic trends that impact the regional economy and the competitiveness of local industries. PEQ is an extension of the continuing work done at UCSUR. Each issue includes the latest data on regional employment and economic conditions. Feature articles cover a variety of issues relating to the regional economy and how it is changing, along with analyses of other economic and social factors that directly impact the future of the region. Significant positive response to PEQ has resulted and has filled a major need in the region for ongoing study of current economic trends.
