Indiana edges past Wisconsin as the top manufacturing-dependent state in the U.S.
Economic Modeling recently ranked states by their dependence on manufacturing. And it looks like Indiana has edged out Wisconsin as the state most dependent on manufacturing to fuel its economy.
Surprisingly, California didn't even rank in the top 15, even though it has the most manufacturing workers of any state.
Michigan, a state that has seen its overall auto manufacturing decline 15% from 2001 to 2011, ranked at number five. However, Alabama ranked close behind at number six as its concentration in auto manufacturing actually increased by 466% in the last decade.
