Inter-State differences in average industrial earnings of workers is largely the result of differences in the industrial composition in the States. States with more high wage industries have a higher industrial earnings rate per worker than States with more low paying industries. It may be, however, that States with high average industrial earnings of workers provide very little employment. While decisions regarding industrial location cannot be made solely on the basis of what workers can get out of the industries, in deciding how to disperse and diversify industry as between the States, the two objectives of employment potential and workers' earnings are factors to be borne in mind.
