File Size:31MB


This is a report of the economic activity in a nine-county area of North-Central Iowa. A large part of this area centers around Fort Dodge, a city of about 30,000 people. Fort Dodge is the farthest west of the large cities (25,000 population or over) of interior Iowa. The counties included in this area are Pocahontas, Humboldt, Wright, Calhoun, Webster, Hamilton, Carroll, Greene and Boone. A substantial part of Boone County and smaller parts of Hamilton and Greene counties are undoubtedly oriented more toward Des Moines and Ames than toward Fort Dodge.
