Three Pillars of the Economy
Unlike many cities of comparable size, Greater Hattiesburg has strength in that the economy stands strong on three pillars – Education, Healthcare and Military. With these strong economic assets, the Hub City has become a stable home to families, college students and retirees. While the strength in education fuels the region's workforce, the thriving healthcare sector is a cornerstone of the local economy and a major value to the region. Greater Hattiesburg is a leading community in Mississippi and one of the most vibrant regions in the Gulf South.
