Download Report | 1.8 MB

By nearly all measures, recovery is continuing in Center City and citywide

Recovery is progressing by nearly all measures: employment, hotel occupancy, retail and restaurant sales, transit ridership, pedestrian volumes and city tax collections are all up. Job recovery is slow but steady, though a few employment sectors are still lagging. Most significantly, Philadelphia’s unemployment rate fell to 4.7% in October, the lowest point since 1990 with almost 100,000 more city residents working in October than in April 2020.
