SUMMARY OF CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI VALLEY ECONOMIC ACTIVITY

Growth in employment and banking activity
varied a great deal among states and SMSAs in the
Central Mississippi Valley (CMV) during the past
year. Although total employment lagged behind the
national trend, third quarter unemployment rates
in the CMV states were generally below the national
rate. Banking activities generally advanced more
rapidly in the CMV states than in the nation.

ending in the third quarter. At the other extreme,
total employment declined 2.2 percent in St. Louis
and 0.3 percent in Evansville during the past year.
The third quarter seasonally adjusted unem­
ployment rate in all of the CMV states was lower than
the national rate of 5.5 percent.
Tennessee had the
lowest unemployment rate among the CMV states at 3.7
percent. Mississippi, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Missouri
had higher quarterly unemployment rates at 4.1, 4.9,
5.0, and 5.1 percent, respectively. Unemployment rates
among the SMSAs in the CMV varied considerably. Little
Rock had an unemployment rate of only 3 percent. Mem­
phis and Springfield were also low at 3.4 percent, while
St. Louis had a third quarter unemployment rate of 6.1
percent.

Tennessee was the only state in the CMV
to have more rapid growth of employment during the
past year than the nation as a whole. Total employ­
ment in Tennessee rose 3.8 percent in the year end­
ing in the third quarter, compared with 3.5 percent
in the U.S. Total employment rose 2.1 percent in
Mississippi, Arkansas, and Kentucky, and decreased
0.8 percent in Missouri during the year ending in
the third quarter. Arkansas and Tennessee were the
only states in the CMV in which payroll employment
increased during the past year at rates as fast as
in the nation. Payroll employment increased 3.7
percent in Arkansas and 3.5 percent in Tennessee
during the year ending in the third quarter, com­
pared with a 3.4 percent increase in the U.S.

Total deposits of member banks increased 9.7
percent and total loans increased 13.8 percent in the
U.S. during the four quarters ending in the third quar­
ter of 1972. Of SMSAs in the CMV, Little Rock had the
most rapid increase in banking activity during this
period, with total deposits increasing 17.9 percent
and loans increasing 27.7 percent.
Other SMSAs in the
CMV with rates of increase above those for the nation
were Memphis, Evansville, Springfield, and Pine Bluff.
St. Louis lagged behind with rates of increase for
total deposits of member banks of 5.4 percent and 8.3
percent for loans during the year ending in the third
quarter.

Among SMSAs in the CMV, employment growth
during the past year was most rapid in Memphis and
Little Rock. Total employment rose 3.2 percent in
Memphis and 3 percent in Little Rock during the year
