ESI President Stephen Mullin and Senior Advisor Bernard Anderson worked with the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce to develop the report called “The Roadmap for Growth for the City of Philadelphia: 2015-2020″. This report examines Philadelphia’s economic growth over the last several decades, focusing on four key measures: population, employment, household income and enterprise creation. It analyzes publicly available data, including trends in the city’s population, employment base, income growth, enterprise creation and the county’s gross domestic product.
ESI prepared a fact-based economic and demographic inventory of the state of Philadelphia’s economy. This fact-based study represents an inventory of key economic indicators that will inform public policy makers and aid them in developing a plan for prosperity for the future. Over the next year and a half, the Roadmap for Growth campaign will serve as a venue to facilitate discussions around public policies designed to help generate growth opportunities and create jobs in the City of Philadelphia.
