Where are America's manufacturing jobs located? It's a timely question for policy makers, politicians, and other wonkish types. This interactive feature from the Brookings Institution provides interested parties with a way to explore the geography of manufacturing in the United States. The materials on the site are divided into eight sections, including Why It Matters, Basic Geography, Industry Specialties, and Wage Variations. Visitors will want to read the brief introduction on the site, and then go ahead with using the interactive map to look around. The map allows visitors to zoom in and out around different metropolitan areas, look up quick facts about manufacturing, and access additional resources. Some of these resources include reports such as "Locating American Manufacturing: Trends in the Geography of Production" and "Why Does Manufacturing Matter? Which Manufacturing Matters."
