Wisconsin Exports in the Past Decade

I come across with the data of export by states, and it is interesting to know the trend of export in Wisconsin and surrounding states in the past decade.

The data shows Wisconsin is making effort to trade with the foreign countries. In the past decade, export in Wisconsin increased 73 percent, which is much higher than the average (53 percent). But there are still some spaces for the increase. According to the latest data, Wisconsin is ranking #20 in the state exports in 2009, while Illinois is #6 and Ohio is #8. The total U.S dollar value of exports in WI is 16.7 billion, which is 40 percent of Illinois’ exports, 1.58 percent of all states.
