Allegheny county, southwestern Pennsylvania, U.S., consisting of a hilly region on the Allegheny Plateau bounded to the southeast by the Monongahela and Youghiogheny rivers and to the northeast by the Allegheny River.
The Ohio, Allegheny, and Monongahela rivers converge in the centre of the county to form an area known as the Golden Triangle; this was a strategic point of contention between the French and the English, who fortified the area with Fort Duquesne (1754) and Fort Pitt (1761), respectively.
The estimated population of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania in 1994 was 358,883.

  Allegheny County, Pennsylvania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A 2004 study by the University of Pittsburgh stated that Allegheny County would be better served by consolidating the southeastern portion of the county (which includes many small, poor communities) into one large municipality, called "Rivers City", which would have a combined population of approximately 250,000.
Allegheny County is known for the three rivers that flow through the county and meet in Pittsburgh: the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio rivers.
In the county, the population is spread out with 21.90% under the age of 18, 8.50% from 18 to 24, 28.30% from 25 to 44, 23.40% from 45 to 64, and 17.80% who are 65 years of age or older.

 Pennsylvania - Allegheny County - Communities at Risk - Toxics - Sierra Club
In Pennsylvania, nearly 5 million people (children, the elderly, and those with chronic respiratory disease) are at risk from air pollution in 31 counties with ozone monitors.
Both perpetrator and victim, Pennsylvania emits an immense amount of air pollution, spewing almost 50 percent of all the nitrogen oxide pollution (critical ingredient for smog) in the northeastern United States.
Pollution in twenty-four Pennsylvania counties remains as bad as in 2002; six counties showed an increase in unhealthy ozone days, and a seventh rural county (Tioga County) received a grade of "D" for its worsening air quality.

 Influenza Vaccination Status of Persons Aged 65-79 Years -- Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, February-March 1997
To estimate the prevalence of influenza vaccination, assess barriers to influenza vaccine use in the county, and to evaluate Medicare claims as a measure of vaccination use, the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) conducted a telephone survey of residents aged 65-79 years during February-March 1997.
Sources of these limitations may be an insufficient number of claims filed by physicians in Allegheny County for influenza vaccinations and an increased enrollment of Medicare beneficiaries in managed-care organizations, which do not report vaccination data to the Health Care Financing Administration.
However, because less than 21% of residents aged greater than or equal to 65 years in Allegheny County were members of a managed-care organization in 1996 (4), the low vaccination claims probably were not caused by enrollment of Medicare beneficiaries in managed-care organizations.

The legality of the ban with the county has come into question before, although that may no longer be an issue as the state is considering legislation of its own.
