Are some regions really outdoing others? A look at the economic data shows that vitality does not only exist in areas with the fastest population growth, or because of a surge in investment. To varying degrees, each region can show growth from the start of this century, both in terms of its own performance and that of its neighbours. In Quebec, growth is not simply limited to two or three regions: data aggregation selected shows that while some regions, such as Mauricie and Montreal, are struggling in relation to the overall picture, others, such as Outaouais, are doing better than the average. This comparative picture covers the 2000 to 2012 period. It is not exhaustive and may not, in some respects, entirely reflect the progress accomplished in some regions these past few years.
