Mississippi’s Economic Growth Slightly Behind National Average

JACKSON, Miss.  – Mississippi’s economic growth rate is one of the best in the nation, according to new figures released Wednesday by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. 

The state’s 1.6% growth rate for 2013 ranked 29th in the nation, but the best in the Southeast, doing better than Louisiana, Alabama and Tennessee.  The national average was 1.8%. 

The biggest contributors to the growth in Mississippi last year came from construction and the production of non-durable goods.
