The State of Wyoming is situated in the American northwest. It covers a total area of 97,813.56 square miles and is the 10th largest state in the US in terms of land area. It is a sparsely populated state with only 522,830 residents.
As of the 2005 estimates, 12.2% of the population was above the age of 65 and 49.6% were women. Of the people above the age of 25, 87.9% were high school graduates and 21.9% held a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree.
Farming is one of the biggest income-producers of the state. The inhabitants of the state derive their source of revenue directly or indirectly through farming or ranching. Dry farming, producing wheat, hay, and barley, is added-one by the more diversified yield of irrigated fields. Mining is one of the largest sectors of Wyoming’s economy and it accounts for about one quarter of the economy. In the 1860S, oil wells were drilled for the first time and, since then, petroleum has been one of the most important minerals found in the state. Petroleum production is centered in Casper. Wyoming is also a significant producer of sodium carbonate and uranium as well as iron, gold, and various clays. Wyoming is a naturally beautiful place and this makes it a popular tourist destination.
January 2009 data shows that the civilian workforce in Wyoming totaled only about 293.1 thousand people, of which 3.7% were unemployed. Major sectors of Wyoming's non-farm labor market include Manufacturing (3.2%), Trade, Transportation and Utilities (18.83%), Professional and Business Services (6.13%), Leisure and Hospitality (11.83%), Education (8.25%) and Government (23.3%).
