Iowa, The Hawkeye State
Iowa wants to be known as more than a farming state and rightfully so there is plenty else going on there, but while raw agricultural products only make up 3.5% of the state's GDP, as much as 25% of the GDP can be attributed to businesses affiliated with agriculture.
In recent years Iowa has produced as much as 19% of the total corn production in the US. They are also a major producer of hogs.
A 2014 study by Iowa State University showed that the majority of communities in Iowa were shrinking. Where cities with 500 or less citizen saw an average of 3% decrease between 2010-2013.
