Getting to know Greater Minnesota

main street

What are the strengths and challenges of the regional economies of Greater Minnesota? Extension analyst Brigid Tuck examined Greater Minnesota's economy using the geographic parameters of Regional Development Commissions. The resulting 12 reports examine Greater Minnesota's economy by describing its industry outputs, employment and wages, and how it is seizing opportunities to sell product to local industries through local products.

Regional leaders and groups can use the research findings to discover their advantages and barriers, decide where to invest time and money, and engage their communities in growing local economies.
