Gallatin County economy ranked strongest of its size in U.S.

January 12, 2018

Gallatin County's economy, widely discussed across the state, received some national attention this week. The area was named as the country's strongest economy of its size in an annual study released by Policom, a Florida-based think tank.

The area was ranked the strongest economy -- which the group defines as "the long-term tendency for an area to consistently grow in both size and quality" -- in a Micropolitan Statistical Area ahead of Lewisburg, Pennsylvania; Truckee-Grass Valley, California; Traverse City, Michigan; and Wooster, Ohio.
