Learn more about the great State of Missouri

Located smack dab in the heart of the Midwestern United States, Missouri is the 18th most populous state in the Union with an estimated 6,137,428 residents. While there is a large population density around some of the major metropolitan areas within the state, the entire state is actually pretty well spread out thanks to its 69,715 square miles worth of area – good for the 21st largest state in the Union.

The most populous city in all of Missouri is actually one of the most interesting cities in America. Kansas City is a large metropolitan city by all accounts with 495,327 residents. That ranks 38th among all cities within the United States. The really strange part is that the Kansas City metropolitan area has two different Kansas Cities – the aforementioned one and Kansas City, Kansas which is actually just the third largest city in Kansas. They are two different cities with two different population counts, although they share a name and a border.

While the capital of Missouri is actually Jefferson City, it’s not actually one of the ten most populous cities within the Show Me State. Let’s look at the nine cities which round up the top ten most populous behind Kansas City:

Manufacturing is extremely critical to Missouri’s financial health as well. The state is one of the leading producers of automobile parts and automobile in the entire nation. It also has major export imprints in beer, nonalcoholic bottled beverages, food processing, defense, and aerospace tech. Missouri was not hit as hard as Rust Belt states were by the threat of shuttering plants and factories, most likely because the state has such a diversified economy and lower cost of living outside of the main metropolitan areas.

Mining is also a key contributor to Missouri’s bottom line. According to recent estimates, 90% of the non-recycled lead supply in the United States comes from the Show Me State. Missouri is also rich in several other natural resources and has significant export profits from mining and producing barite, limestone, iron ore, zinc, and timber.

If you’ve had a good slab of ribs or a tasty bit of barbecued chicken somewhere in the Midwest, chances are good that your dinner could have come from Missouri.

Keeping with the diversified economy theme, tourism is yet another healthy part of the Missouri economy. It’s a growing sector within the state which is buoyed by many different attractions, historical and otherwise. One major attraction which is less history oriented and much more contemporary is the Bass Pro Shops national headquarters in Springfield. In an area where lake and river fishing is extremely popular among the locals in Missouri and in surrounding states, it’s basically like Disneyland for those who fish.
