Manufacturing remains an integral component of Pennsylvania's economy, accounting for almost 570,000 jobs or approximately 10% of the commonwealth's workforce. Manufacturing's importance to the commonwealth has been emphasized by Governor Corbett's Manufacturing Advisory Council and continues to be supported by the Advisory Committee on Advanced Manufacturing within the state Workforce Investment Board.
 
With that in mind, the Department of Labor & Industry, through the Center for Workforce Information and Analysis (CWIA), has created Manufacturing Fast Facts, a new quarterly publication featuring snapshots of labor market information for Pennsylvania's manufacturing sector.
