The Regional Economy

Humboldt County's Economic Development plan, Prosperity! has identified small owner-resident businesses as our greatest potential for economic growth and stability.

54% of Humboldt County's businesses are micro businesses, those that create four or fewer jobs.

Counties in AEDC's service area lag behind state and national levels by all income measures (pre capita income, median household income, median family income).
