Metadata[+] Show full item record
"The research for this publication was initiated by the University of Missouri as part of a consortium that included the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, and the University of Arkansas. The consortium was to develop a bibliography and an evaluation of publications concerning economic development in the Ozark region for the Economic Development Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce. This work was done in preparation for activities of the Ozark Regional Development Commission. The initial report encompassed only those publications applicable to the 44 southern Missouri counties designated as part of the Ozark Development Region. Selected references from that publication have been utilized in this manuscript. The initial literature review has been supplemented to up-date it, and expand the coverage to the entire state of Missouri. This publication is an attempt to present the most current and relevant material concerning economic development in Missouri in summary form. ... This literature review has resulted in two publications. This one is a selected list of publications for individuals concerned with regional economic development planning in Missouri. The companion publication, a University of Missouri Agricultural Experiment Station Research Bulletin No. 933 entitled "A Bibliography on Economic and Social Development in Missouri, 1960-67," is a more comprehensive bibliography of material relevant to economic development in Missouri. Recognition is made of the fact that judgment has been used by the authors in determining which publications should be included in the various sections in both bibliographies. For example, the Federal Census publications have not been included in this selected bibliography but have been cited in the more comprehensive companion publication. While differences of opinion might exist as to which publications to include or omit, the consensus of the economists, sociologists and political scientist preparing this manuscript has resulted in citations that follow." --Preface
