LPN Jobs in MI

Although by the size of its land Michigan ranks only 22nd of the 50 states, the inclusion of the Great Lakes waters over which it has jurisdiction increases its area considerably, placing it 11th in terms of total area. The capital is Lansing, in south-central Michigan. The state’s name is derived from michi-gama, an Ojibwa (Chippewa) word meaning “large lake.” Michigan is the only one of the states to be split into two large land segments: the sparsely populated but mineral-rich Upper Peninsula (commonly called “the U.P.”) slices eastward from northern Wisconsin and is connected to the rest of Michigan by a peninsula about 200 mi (320 km) long, while the lower peninsula takes up most of the land between Lakes Huron and Michigan.

Michigan’s population was probably about 40,000 before 1800; it totaled 568,103 in 1860, 1,849,083 in 1900, and 4,895,356 in 1940. The 1970 census counted 9,938,444 residents. With the decline of the automobile industry during the late 20th cent., unemployment rose sharply; the 1990 census reported 10,112,016 inhabitants. The economy was based on manufacturing, and in the early 21st cent. diversifying into high technology, tourism, and agriculture was increasingly important.
Michigan has an extensive transportation system based on its large number of natural waterways including the St. Clair River, Detroit River, St. Mary’s River (which flows into Lake Superior), Grand River (flowing into Lake Michigan), and Thunder Bay River (flowing into Lake Huron). Several canals were built in the early 19th cent. to connect rivers and lakes, and a rail network was developed by 1900. The first public road, a wagon route from Detroit to Howell, was laid out in 1825. In 1916 federal funds supported the construction of a 6-mi (10-km) tunnel beneath the Detroit River, linking Canada with the U.S., and in 1917 an international bridge was built further south. The chief seaports are Detroit, Port Huron, Sault Ste Marie, and Alpena; Great Lakes shipping is of major importance.

The capital is Lansing; other important cities are Detroit (the largest), Grand Rapids, Warren, Flint, Sterling Heights, Ann Arbor, Livonia, Dearborn, Farmington Hills, Kalamazoo; and Traverse City.
