State Overview

The territory, mainly flat, gradually rises from the coastal strip towards the interior, where it reaches NE 246 m in Mount Woodall, the highest elevation of the state. The low and marshy coasts are accompanied by sandy islands that delimit a vast and shallow lagoon basin, the Mississippi Sound. The main waterway is Mississippi, which forms the western border of the state; the Yazoo and Big Black rivers flow into it, while the Pearl and Pascagoula, formed by the union of the Leaf and Chickasawhay rivers, flow directly into the Gulf of Mexico. There are numerous lakes; the most important basins, however, are the artificial lakes Arkabutla, Sardis, Enid, Grenada, Okatibee and Ross Barnett. The climate is subtropical, with very hot summers and mild and short winters; rainfall is around 1200-1500 mm per year. Over 50% of the population is made up of blacks and this explains the social importance, within the state, of the racial issue. Agriculture is the major economic item: the main products are cotton, soy, cereals, vegetables, fruit, seeds from tung oil. Also noteworthy is the cattle breeding and forest resources. Approximately 90% of mining production is represented by oil and natural gas, processed in six refineries. Manufacturing activities are less developed, with a clear prevalence of the food, textile, paper, wood and electronics sectors. Main cities, besides the capital, are Biloxi, Meridian, Gulfport, Greenville, Hattiesburg, Columbus and Vicksburg.
