Rust Belt Rebounds

This recent Census Brief (CENBR/98-7) looks at nonfarm business establishments, unemployment, crime, and new job generation in so-called "rust belt" metropolitan areas such as Detroit-Ann Arbor-Flint, MI and Cleveland-Akron, OH. The report notes an economic and demographic rebound, deemed a "statistical reversal of fortune," with some exceptions outside of the Midwest.
