Eastern North Carolina at Work: What Are the Region's Economic Engines?

Record #:
The persistent image of eastern North Carolina is one of an agrarian section with high poverty, a less educated workforce, and a lagging infrastructure. Quinterno examines what is driving the economy of this area in the twenty-first century and where people are employed--agriculture, manufacturing, retail and service, private employers, small businesses, and the military. Charts provide information on demographic characteristics of the region, workforce, wages, and the three largest private employers in each county.
