New Study Reveals Chester County as the State’s Most Paycheck-Friendly County

Mark Hostutler

Chester County is the most paycheck-friendly county in Pennsylvania according to a recent study by SmartAsset.

The study looked for places across the state where the economic conditions allow people to keep more of the money they make. To determine where these places are, the study considered four different factors, including semi-monthly paycheck amounts, purchasing power, unemployment rates, and income growth.

These four factors were then used to calculate an overall paycheck-friendliness score.
