Here's How America Uses Its Land - Bloomberg
There are many statistical measures that show how productive the U.S. is. Its economy is the largest in the world and grew at a rate of 4.1 percent last quarter, its fastest pace since 2014. The unemployment rate is near the lowest mark in a half century.

What can be harder to decipher is how Americans use their land to create wealth. The 48 contiguous states alone are a 1.9 billion-acre jigsaw puzzle of cities, farms, forests and pastures that Americans use to feed themselves, power their economy and extract value for business and pleasure.

Machining Demand Surges With Boom in U.S. Manufacturing - Thomasnet
This trend correlates with a booming resurgence in U.S. manufacturing, which added 24,000 jobs in April alone according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). However, these strong employment numbers somewhat mask a significant challenge for the precision machining industry – that challenge being the shortage of skilled workers in the trade. In fact, the Bureau predicts that there will be a need for an additional 29,000 new machinists by 2024.

Every couple years, economists at the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) make their best educated guess by estimating what will be the fastest- and slowest-growing jobs nationally. Their latest release looks at how employment will change across hundreds of different occupations from 2016 to 2026; for instance, they project more home health aides will service the country’s aging population, more software developers will define the country’s increasingly digital economy, and more manufacturing workers will continue to disappear.

USDA ERS - Rural Manufacturing Survival and Its Role in the Rural Economy - United States Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service
The manufacturing sector’s share of employment and earnings in rural (nonmetro) areas began to exceed its share in urban (metro) areas in the 1980s, when import competition forced domestic manufacturers to lower costs. Wages, property taxes, and land prices are generally lower in rural areas. And despite the sector’s declining employment since the 1950s, manufacturing jobs still represented 14 percent of rural private nonfarm jobs in 2015 (compared to 7 percent for urban). As a share, manufacturing earnings are even more important to rural America. Manufacturing earnings represented 21 percent of rural private nonfarm earnings in 2015 (compared to 11 percent for urban).

Many small cities are growing and attracting new investments, but unemployment, poverty, vacant buildings, and economic distress are pronounced in some small metros.

We've compiled a dataset and created the Small City Economic Dynamism Index to help policymakers and practitioners gain more nuanced perspectives.
