The Northern Tier region covers more than 4,000 square miles in rural Pennsylvania, consisting of Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna,
Tioga and Wyoming counties along the border of New York State. The region continues to exemplify a diverse economy with both challenges
and opportunities. While still one of the most important sectors, manufacturing units have remained consistent, while health care
employment has continued to increase and is now the largest and highest-paying employer in the region.
