From Ohio History Central
From 1976 to present day, Ohio has been in transition. Several fundamental changes in the political, economic, and social lives of Ohioans characterizes this era. Generally, Ohioans have become much more conservative in their politics, enabling the Republican Party to dominate the state. Economically, Ohio, once one of the leading manufacturers in the United States of America, has experienced a decline in industrial jobs. As factories have relocated to other states or countries, Ohio businesses have shifted to more service-oriented positions. Cities, which declined as factories closed, are now being revitalized as new businesses arrive. Race, gender, and class issues continue to exist, as Ohioans struggle to provide equality for all people.
