Technology and manufacturing in the Seventh District
Almost all of the net new jobs created in the United States since World War II have been in the service-producing industries. Growth of service sector jobs has been particularly important in Seventh District states. With increases in productivity, the number of manufacturing jobs has grown very little since World War II. Since 1979, as industries in our northern states have restructured, the number of manufacturing jobs in each of the Seventh Federal Reserve District states—Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, and Wisconsin—has actually declined.
