Pittsburgh is the second largest city in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the 22nd largest city in the United States. Like most urban centers, Pittsburgh has faced many economic obstacles caused by the Great Recession including increased unemployment and population decline. The steady performance of key industries1 has kept many residents from losing their job, but not all the news has been good.
For example, the unemployment rate at the start of 2012 was 7.7% (lower than the national average at that time) and has since dropped to 6.5%, which is 17% lower than the current national average2. However, the median household income for Pittsburghers is not only 30% lower than the national average, it’s 28% lower than the state average. In addition, 22% of residents are living below the poverty line, as compared with the state average of 12.6%3. According to data from CareOne Debt Relief Services®, the amount of debt owed, as reported by residents seeking a loan-free option for debt consolidation in Pittsburgh, increased from 2011 to 2012, and was 1% higher than the national average.
