The Morgantown Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), which includes both Monongalia and Preston Counties, should continue to post solid growth in jobs, income and population during the next year. All three of these important indicators have surged in the Morgantown MSA during the last two decades and its unemployment rate has remained low. During the recent “Great Recession” years of 2008 - 2010 the Morgantown MSA was one of very few MSA’s in the country that added population, employment and income. An article entitled “Measuring the Recessions Toll, in the September 22, 2011 edition of The New York Times stated that Monongalia County had the largest increase in median household income in the nation between 2007 and 2010. One of the reasons that the economy of the Morgantown MSA fared much better than the rest of the country in recent years is that it is heavily weighted toward employment sectors such as government and health care which are growing and relatively recession resistant sectors.

It's absolutely amazing here. You can hardly find a place that doesn't have development going on in it.

There is so much new stuff I stopped posting most of it here because it looks like I'm bragging.
