Ohio’s economy shows slight rise for 3rd year

Ohio’s economy grew slightly last year for the third consecutive year, national data show.

The state’s real gross domestic product increase of 2.2 percent in 2012 lagged the U.S. average of 2.5 percent, according to numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis reported Friday by the Dayton Daily News.

Ohio’s growth last year was less than the 2.9 percent in 2011 but more than in 2010, when it was 2.1 percent. Those increases came after a 5.7 percent drop in 2009 amid fallout from the Great Recession. The state’s growth has been behind the national average 13 of the last 15 years.
