Take a look at a recent Maxine Goodman Levin School of Urban Affairs publication:

The State of Rural Northeast Ohio by Dr. Iryna Demko and Samuel Owusu-Agyemang

Publication Date: October 2019


This research brief focuses on industries in eight rural NEO counties: Ashland, Ashtabula, Columbiana, Erie, Huron, Richland, Tuscarawas, and Wayne. These counted produced $30 billion of output and employed 300,000 people in 2018. Output growth in rural NEO counties has outperformed urban NEO and Ohio – much of this growth can be attributed to Utica Shale development. Tuscarawas county surpassed output growth in all other counties in NEO.
