Welcome to the Planning Commission's Data Index web page, which was created to provide basic population, economic, and other data regarding Chester County. This web page includes tables, downloadable data spreadsheets, and links to other web sites that provide data on a wide range of topics.
The data on this website has been gathered from a number of national, state, and county agencies which publish data throughout the year. As a result, the data on this website is gathered and posted as it becomes available. US Census data is typically updated in the winter and early summer, while most county data is updated in mid spring. If you cannot find what you are looking for, try entering a key word in this search box.
In addition, the Planning Commission has produced a Chester County Economy report that provides a wide range of economic data. The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission has established a Municipal Data Navigator which can be used to access demographic and other data regarding municipalities and counties in southeastern Pennsylvania and the New Jersey suburbs of Philadelphia. It also lists data for the nine-county region as a whole.
