  • Erie—Weak Employment, Strong Per Capita GDP Gains
  • Employment in the Erie metro area fell about 1 percent from mid-2012 to mid-2013, with most major industry segments experiencing employment declines during this period. Recent year-over-year changes in home values have also been negative. However, per capita GDP rose roughly 5 percent in the Erie area from 2010 to 2012, far outpacing increases in Pennsylvania (1.7 percent) and the US (1.3 percent) during the same period.
