Big City Opportunities - Small Town Vibes
Linn County is the second most populous county in Iowa, and is home to Cedar Rapids, the second largest city in the state. Linn County is one of the fastest growing areas in Iowa, and continues to be Iowa’s largest manufacturing center. Modest growth in manufacturing will continue even though major employment gains continue to be in service industries with financial services representing the largest growth area from the prior year. Only about 2% of Linn County employment population is directly employed in farming.
