The Idaho Department of Labor says the state’s economy has been growing more slowly than the nation’s. The Idaho Statesman reports the state’s total gross state product rose 3.3 percent last year to $55.4 billion. But, when adjusted for inflation, it rose 2 percent to $50.7 billion. Nationwide, the inflation-adjusted gross product for 2010 is 2.6 percent.
Idaho ranked 30th among the states in its rate of growth.
