Chicago Fed Letter, No. 189, May 2003
Regional Growth in Worker Quality
An analysis of regional labor quality growth places the Midwest near the center of the U.S. labor quality distribution. To maintain its relative position going forward, the Midwest will have to increase its share of workers with post-secondary education. This will require policies that not only promote the education of its residents, but also efforts to make the region more attractive to the highly mobile population of college graduates.
