A New Michigan: The 2013 Report on Michigan’s Progress in Six Opportunities
Monday, Mar 11, 2013

The 2013 New Michigan Report is the first in an annual series in which Michigan’s progress in leveraging its assets into economic growth will be tracked. Michigan’s performance on various metrics will be charted over time, and compared to the results achieved in other high-performing states.

This report provides a baseline of Michigan’s overall performance relative to other states in the most recent year for which information is available. In future years, we will build on this data and show how Michigan’s relative performance is changing.

All figures in this report, except for those that show growth projections, show Michigan’s rank among all 50 states on a particular metric. First, we present Michigan’s performance for the economy, overall. Then we define each of the six opportunities using a set of relevant industries, and rank Michigan’s performance only within these industries for each opportunity
