It provides confidential reports on "personalities, events and trends" within the politics of Pennsylvania.[2] Annual features include "The PA Report 100," profiling 100 individuals the editors think are "most likely to have an impact on government and politics" in Pennsylvania that year, and "The Political Stock Exchange," ranking the relative value of political personalities to their cause.[2][3] The annual "Legislative All Star Team" provides a tongue-in-cheek baseball team composed of legislators.[5]

Features and exclusive interviews in the Pennsylvania Report frequently appear in other publications, including the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette[6][7] and the Philadelphia City Paper.[8][9]

Former editor David Buffington is frequently quoted regarding issues of Pennsylvania politics.[10][11][12][13][14][15]

The results of a Pennsylvania Report poll regarding the 1994 Pennsylvania gubernatorial election was reported in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.[4] In an article about freshman legislator Shawn Flaherty, the Pittsburgh City Paper noted that he had been dubbed "Rookie of the Year" by the Pennsylvania Report.[16]
