The Export Monitor provides goods-and-services export trends in U.S. counties, metropolitan areas, and states from 2003 to 2014 across a variety of detailed industries and for a number of indicators, including export volume, export share of GDP, direct and total export-supported jobs, and growth rates. The analysis of these indicators focuses on change over time and can help local practitioners understand the role of exports in the economic recovery. Our export database is unique because it includes both goods and services exports and derives estimates by production location rather than origin-of-movement, as is the norm with most other export databases.
This brief blog captures trends and highlights related to the export data. Use the interactive below to see how your metro region performed. Previous Export Nation reports are available for download above.
