Abstract:
Often cities and counties that build their economies on one major industry face difficulties when that industry declines. Tobacco was Durham's mainstay for decades, but its decline did not heavily affect the city's economic base and quality of life. Rather, Durham moved on to a diversified industrial base, a technology and research and development sector, and a first-rate medical and university system.

Abstract:
Greater Durham's nickname, \"A City of Medicine,\" is well-earned. For example, almost 28 percent of Durham County's population works in healthcare; over 50 percent of the state's biotech firms are in the county; three Nobel Laureates did their prize-wining research in Durham; and the Duke University Medical Center is ranked the nation's sixth-best medical center.
