Center for Regional Analysis

Director of the Center for Regional Analysis

Naomi Young joined the EDC team in 2018 as the first Director of the Center for Regional Analysis. Young brings a deep background in economics and public policy, most recently as a senior economist at The University of Maryland’s Environmental Finance Center. To learn more about Naomi Young, read her interview with LNP here.

 About the Center

In late 2016, EDC’s Board of Directors focused on a growing trend in the economic development industry:  the need and expectation for strong data and analysis as a fundamental to driving its own programming as well as guiding effective, sustainable growth in Lancaster County.  Recognizing a void in the Central PA marketplace, EDC advanced an ambitious initiative to develop its own applied economic research center, securing $1 million in seed grants from both The Steinman Foundation and the BB&T Economic Growth Fund at the Lancaster County Community Foundation.
