Missouri, a state of the Midwest,
USA; 180,546 km2, 6.0 million residents (2011),
of which 83% are white. Capital: Jefferson City. Enlisted in
the Union in 1821 as the 24th State. Nickname: The Show
Me State. Check searchforpublicschools for public primary and high schools in Missouri.
After a major European immigration in the 1800s. and a smaller
wave of black migrants from the southern states (circa 1940-60),
especially to metropolitan areas, Missouri has had only a small
population growth. Nearly two-thirds of the population lives in the
million cities of St. Louis (with border with Illinois) and Kansas
City (with border with Kansas). The former agricultural state today
has a large industrial sector and a broad-based economy. The largest
industries include the automotive, aerospace and fast-growing data
industries. The industries are concentrated to Kansas City and to
St. Louis. Louis, who holds the headquarters of i.a. McDonnell
Douglas, Monsanto Chemicals, General Dynamics and the world's
largest brewery, Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser). Agricultural production
remains high, with beef and pork, dairy products and wheat,
soybeans, maize and other fodder plants. The approx. 100,000 farms
with an average size of 116 ha cover half of the state's land, while
the forest area after clearings in the 1800s. is more than halved to
less than one-third of the area. Most forests are predominantly for
recreational use and are found in the Ozark region, which has large
tourist visits and which supplies electricity (hydropower) and
mining products (lead, zinc, limestone).
The landscape consists of gently rolling moraine plains
(prairie), which in the south and south are replaced by the Ozark
plateau mountain range. Most rivers are tributaries to Missouri,
which intersects the landscape from west to east and runs along
the Mississippi border just north of St. John's. Louis. The climate
is rainy and the mainland with cool winters and hot
summers. Situations with extreme weather changes and tornadoes occur
frequently, and Missouri has been hit several times, most recently
in 1993. The violent natural phenomena also include the New Madrid
1811-12 earthquakes, the strongest recorded in the United States.
French settlers, who came from Illinois to the north, built
Sainte Geneviève on the west Mississippi in 1735, and in the 1760s
St. Louis, which became an important starting point for further
settlements westward when the area as part of the Louisiana
acquisition in 1803 came under the United States. In the battle over
the spread of slavery to the west, in 1820, Congress adopted the
so-called Missouri Compromise, which allowed the area's inclusion as
a slave state in the United States the following year; However,
slavery was of limited importance in Missouri, which remained in the
Union during the American Civil War 1861-65.
