Lansing

Lansing is the fifth biggest city within the state of Michigan. It serves a population of nearly 115,000 inhabitants and is likewise the state capital. The city of Lansing is located within the Counties of Eaton and Ingham. The whole Lansing Metropolitan Area is known locally as "Mid-Michigan", a center for government, education, business and culture. The population of its Metropolitan Statistical Area is 464,036.

The city of Lansing is home to numerous educational institutions, like for instance Michigan State University, medical and nursing schools, a veterinary school, two law schools (including the Thomas M. Cooley Law School). Government institutions include a federal court, the state capital, the state Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. The area is home to the head offices of four national insurance businesses and high-tech manufacturing.

Lansing vied with the city of Detroit to become the state capital during the year 1847. Lansing, that was a small community at the time, was chosen partly because of its central location. By the year 1859, Lansing became incorporated as a city with a population of just a few thousand. As Lansing grew, a state capitol building was constructed and a railroad was built through the city. When Olds Motor Vehicle Company was founded within Lansing in 1897, the city's growth increased as it became a major industrial center. Automotive manufacturing and other industries flourished. The city of Lansing has become more diversified in recent decades, with the expansion of manufacturing, government, banking, healthcare, insurance and education. The services sector is based mostly on healthcare.

There is a GM assembly plant operating plant within the city of Lansing, along with many other manufacturing facilities. Numerous people are employed by government, biotechnology and information technology companies, and by national insurance companies: Jackson National Life, Auto-Owners Insurance, Michigan Millers Insurance Company and the Accident Fund.

Prima Civitas is a job-creation initiative. Launched in the year 2006 by Michigan State University in partnership with East Lansing and Lansing, it is designed to boost the region's technology business.
