Since its admittance to the Union in 1803, Ohio's central geographic location has proved to be a vital link between the Northeast states and the rest of the country's western and southern expanses.

Today, Ohio's largest employment sector remains trade and transportation, followed by health care and education, federal employment, professional and hi-tech services, and manufacturing.

With a strong diversity in its population, a varied economy based on both agriculture and manufacturing, and a mix of rural and urban populations with affordable housing - Ohio remains the true crossroads of America

Ohio is usually ranked in top 10 lists for largest economies and best business climates of all 50 US states, attracting almost 60 major corporations to take up headquarters within the state — including Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati), Goodyear Tire & Rubber (Akron), AK Steel (West Chester Township), Abercrombie & Fitch (New Albany), and Wendy's (Columbus).
