Preliminary Economic Analysis of the Ozark Gateway District.
Economic Research Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
Thirty-nine tables on the economic and social trends from 1950-67 in the Ozark Gateway District are presented in this report. This four-county area in Southwest Missouri was dormant for over 10 years, with limited population growth, low levels of productivity, and low incomes. It was operating below its potential level of general business activity and its population of 135,000 was underutilized. During the 1960's, the economic activity appeared to quicken somewhat, and Joplin, the largest city in the district and surrounding area, showed promise as a trade and production center. With comprehensive planning, the economy could grow substantially in the 1970's. (Author/BC)
