The decreasing cost of transporting iron ore
Scrap metal is widely available in city locales
A large demand for steel exists in large coastal cities around the world
Cheap sources of iron ore from foreign countries
There is a shortage of iron ore in the interior United States
Proximity to a major university
Access to venture capital and entrepreneurs
Areas with high quality of life reputations

Large portions of the population engaged in agricultural activity
Large portions of the population are highly skilled and educated
The standard of living has generally been rising
Generally concentrated in the western portions of Russia
Located along transportation routes, especially railroads
The Ural Mountains vast amount of natural resources both supply and fuel factories with materials necessary to manufacture goods
The vast amount of fast moving rivers and large population create an agglomeration of industries near Lake Baikal
A large manufacturing area is concentrated near Moscow because of it's market, transportation connections, and it's centrality
Automobile assembly plant
High- tech research facility
Lower labor costs in other U.S. regions
Cars are increasingly made with plastic and aluminum materials, which changes the optimal location of assembly plants
The United States population center countries to migrate south and west thereby increasing the transportation costs of production in the north
Weak unions in the north and shortage of skilled labor
Increasing competition from international companies locating plants in the United States
People migrate from the cities into rural areas seeking new jobs in the primary sector. This migration leads to a decrease in death rate for the country.
Individuals migrate to new industrial or urban areas in search of jobs. Over time the death rate increases for the country because of the high risk jobs.
Families migrate to cities seeking jobs in the secondary sector and because of the increased wages, birth rates increases for the country.
Mechanized farming replaces many labor-intensive jobs, inducing people to move to new industrial and urban areas. Over time, the country's birth rate decreases as the country industrializes.
Industrialization has very little effect on the migration of a country's population but does have the dramatic effect of increasing the death rate.

They are distributed unevenly around the globe
The supply of fossil fuels is finite
Wealthy countries consume greater amounts of fossil fuels than poorer countries
The wealthiest countries have the greatest deposits of fossil fuels
The cost of fossil fuels will likely rise as global demand increases and reserves decline
