DETROIT, Mich., November 12, 2015 – This report provides a fact-based assessment of Michigan’s economic competitiveness relative to other states. Michigan’s performance is compared on key output (e.g., employment, GDP) and input (e.g., labor cost) metrics. A set of “traditional,” “new economy,” and “Top Ten” benchmark states were used to provide multiple reference points to evaluate Michigan’s performance.

While the intent of this report is not to make recommendations, general conclusions are outlined. These conclusions are used by Business Leaders for Michigan to help develop strategies for making Michigan a “Top Ten” state for jobs, personal income, and a healthy economy.
