The City of Pittsburgh works with The Forbes Funds to do independent third-party evaluations to ensure that we and our partners are delivering services effectively and equitably city-wide. Equity Indicators as a baseline measure for addressing inequity and inequality in the city.
The City of Pittsburgh has released the first annual report of the Pittsburgh Equity Indicators as a baseline measure for addressing inequity and inequality in the city.
The report comprises a set of 80 measures that highlight disparities by race, gender, or income in four domains: health, food and safety; education, workforce development and entrepreneurship; housing, transportation, infrastructure and environment; and civic engagement and communications.
Published as part of the city’s OnePGH Resilience Strategy, it pinpoints the problem areas in which Pittsburgh’s residents of different races, genders and incomes experience vastly different health, social, and economic outcomes and access to resources and opportunities.
“Ensuring equity for all is one of the city’s greatest priorities, and we are taking a data-driven approach to identify where the inequality is most pronounced, and then invest in eliminating it.”Mayor William Peduto
