About half of Alabama
Manufacturing is Arizona’s leading
economic activity. The state produces electronics, published materials,
processed foods and items for the aerospace and transportation industries. In
this rapidly growing state, construction, communications, and technology are
important contributors to the economy.
Service industries continue to grow along with the tourist trade. Large numbers
of visitors come each year to enjoy Arizona’s warm climate, and unique natural
features including the Grand Canyon, the Painted Desert, Monument Valley, and
meteor craters. Ancient Native American ruins and Indian reservations also
attract many tourists. National and State forests are popular vacation spots for
millions of visitors each year.
The mineral wealth of Arizona is great. The state leads the nation in the
production of copper. Sand and gravel are also important resources. Less
plentiful but valuable minerals mined in Arizona include gold, lead, silver,
stone, zinc, and uranium.
Mild winters contribute to a productive farming industry. Arizona supplies
fruits and vegetables for markets in colder parts of the United States.
Principal crops include lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli, and sorghum. But dairy
items and cattle are Arizona’s most valuable agricultural products.
