Economic Upheaval in the Midwest
Last Updated: 01/09/84

Economic recovery in this region in 1983 was concentrated in the motor vehicle industry and certain smaller sectors such as household appliances. The gap in the region's economic performance relative to the rest of the nation, a gap that began to open in 1979, widened further in 1983.
