Job growth has been sufficient to lower the formal rate of unemployment, but not enough to get Philadelphia back to 1990 job levels or reduce the high poverty rate. Philadelphia still has 5% fewer jobs than in 1990, while our suburbs are up 26%. Find out the reasons and potential solutions in State of Center City 2018, coming tomorrow. #SOCC2018

    State of Center City Preview - Unemployment
    The Center City District (CCD), Central Philadelphia Development Corporation (CPDC) and Center City District Foundation (CCDF) work together to enhance the vitality and competitiveness of Philadelphia's downtown.

"If local growth since 2009 was robust enough to make us just average, attaining the 2.3 percent growth rate of America’s largest cities, Philadelphia would have added 45,400 more jobs -- one homegrown Amazon -- on top of existing growth of 55,100 for a total of 100,500 new jobs." More in CCD President Paul Levy's op-ed on philly.com.

    Sure, Philly is growing. But not fast enough | Opinion
    The Philadelphia story is not a tale of two cities; it's a tale of one city not growing fast enough to address problems we've inherited, when we can count less on higher levels of government for help. - Paul R. Levy, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News
