495/MetroWest Partnership: Our 2021 "Strength in Numbers" Report


Strength in Numbers 2021
& Community Profiles
Each year, the 495/MetroWest Partnership publishes our Strength in Numbers report, highlighting our region's advantages and successes. While 2020 brought with it instability, hardship, and unprecedented challenges for all of our stakeholders, 2021 has shown optimism and resurgence in the 495/MetroWest region. While many residents and businesses were adversely impacted by the pandemic, our region was uniquely well-positioned to weather the crisis economically, due to a strong presence of invulnerable economic sectors and a highly educated workforce, consistently enjoying comparatively lower unemployment. Now, as we emerge from the pandemic, those advantages continue to serve our region well.
Accompanying our 2021 Strength in Numbers report are economic and demographic profiles of each of our 36 cities and towns. Data points presented in each community profile include population changes, educational attainment, commuting patterns, housing information, occupations and industries, and more.
We invite our stakeholders to utilize our Strength in Numbers report and the accompanying community profiles in promoting the region and inviting others to be a part of all that is happening throughout our 36 communities!

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out if the Partnership can be of any assistance to you:
Jason Palitsch, Executive Director

Thank you for your continued commitment to strengthening our region.
