ABSTRACT
The article discusses the economic profile of Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan area. The area's much-publicized beauty and quality of life have given the region a higher profile among business people. At the same time, Seattle's increasingly well-to-do residents and health population growth rates have polished the appeal of its consumer markets. State demographers projected an increase in statewide Washington population.
