Keystone Research Center

The Keystone Research Center was created to broaden public discussion on strategies to achieve a more prosperous and equitable Pennsylvania economy.

As a research and policy development organization, the Keystone Research Center conducts original research, produces reports, and promotes public dialogue that addresses important economic and civic problems, and proposes new policies to help resolve those problems.

Established in 1996, Keystone operates through the collaborative efforts of Pennsylvania citizens drawn from academia, labor, religious and business organizations. Rather than simply outlining Pennsylvania’s problems, the Keystone Research Center is dedicated to using research and collaboration to propose workable policy alternatives.

While some research organizations focus on building abstract models divorced from socioeconomic reality, Keystone grounds its work in the knowledge and experience of managers, workers and others who are active participants in the economy. Careful case studies combined with quantitative analysis lead to practical recommendations for creating a better Pennsylvania.

Over the two decades, the Keystone Research Center has become a leading source of independent analysis of Pennsylvania’s economy and public policy.
