Our annual state-of-the state issue examines how the Minnesota economy is doing six years after the end of the recession. In an overview story, DEED analyst Dave Senf takes a broad look at the state economy. He focuses on employment growth, unemployment rates, job vacancies, wage and salary trends, job growth projections and much more. Six other stories break down the economy by state region.
The main takeaway from these stories is Minnesota's economy is doing well entering the seventh year of the recovery. In some respects - such as the unemployment rate - the state ranks among the best in the country. But in other areas, including long-term unemployment and job quality, there's room for improvement.
