    LONGWOOD: A CRITICAL MASSACHUSETTS ECONOMIC AND JOB-CREATION ENGINE

    Medical & Academic Area grew jobs 2x as fast as MA, now accounts for 1 of every 10 jobs in Boston

    A new report analyzing economic development in the Longwood Medical and Academic Area shows Longwood now has one of the highest concentrations of jobs in Boston, increasing by nearly 30%, or nearly 15,000 jobs, in only 10 years, double Massachusetts’ growth rate during the same period. Employment in Longwood reached a historic high of nearly 68,000 jobs, exceeding other prominent hubs, such as Kendall Square and the Seaport, by 32% and 80%, respectively.

    Fueling the state’s economic growth, Longwood drives $30 billion in business revenues in Massachusetts and supports $18 billion of the gross state product. The small, dense area creates jobs and economic activity in every community of the state, with Longwood’s 68,000 jobs producing an additional 87,000 outside of the area.

    The report was conducted by the Economic and Public Policy Research Group at the University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute. The report can be viewed at masco.org/longwoodimpact.
