2014 Economic Outlook, State by State

After a disappointing year of economic growth in 2013, things are looking up for next year at both the national and state level. But like most of the recovery thus far, improvement will vary from state to state and region to region. States located along the West Coast will by and large fare better than states in New England and portions of the Midwest. Areas rich in natural and energy resources, such as North Dakota, will also lead the way in 2014 while those states heavily impacted by ailing industries and cuts to federal and state government will have more muted growth.
