SUMMARY OF CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI VALLEY ECONOMIC ACTIVITY

Employment In the nation and in the Central
Mississippi Valley (CMV) states increased more rapidly
during the second year of the present recovery than dur­
ing the first year.
Total U.S. employment increased 3.4
percent during the year ending in the fourth quarter of
1972, compared with 1.7 percent during the previous four
quarters. As indicated in the accompanying table, the
rate of recovery in employment has varied among the CMV
states. Employment growth was fastest in Tennessee and
slowest in Missouri.
The contrast between the rates of
growth in employment during the first and second years
of recovery was greatest in Kentucky, where total em­
ployment rose 0.3 percent during the first year of re­
covery and 2.8 percent during the second year.

In several metropolitan areas in the CMV, total
employment increased faster during the first year of re­
covery than during the second year, the reverse of the
national and regional pattern.
The rates of change in
total employment in Evansville, Fort Smith, and St. Louis
differ most sharply from the general trend. In Evansville
total employment rose 4.1 percent during the first year of
national economic recovery and 1.6 percent in the second
year. In Fort Smith total employment increased 3.4 per­
cent in the first year and 0.9 percent in the second year.
Total employment in St. Louis has declined during two
years of national economic recovery, falling 1.0 percent
during the first year and 1.8 percent in the second year.
