South Bend is a city located in St. Joseph County in the US State of Indiana. With a population of just over 100,000 it serves as the county seat. It is the fourth largest city in the state of Indiana, and also serves as an economic and cultural hub in North Indiana.

A Rebuilding City

The city population peaked at around 130,000 people in the 1960’s. However, the population declined in the latter half of the 21st century as the city lost most of its heavy industry, including the Studebaker plant that had been the number one employer.

It’s only been in recent years this trend has reversed, though it has been a slow process, with 2015, for example, showing a net migration of 286 people moving into the city.

The city plays host to a number of annual music festivals, is also home to a museum of art containing more than 850 artworks. There are also multiple museums, performing arts centers and theatres – both traditional and movie style.

The South Bends Parks and Recreation Department operate over 50 parks, golf courses and other outdoor recreation facilities located throughout the city.

Service and Health Industries

The largest industries in South Bend today are Healthcare, Education and Tourism. However, the city government has taken a number of steps to encourage industry and manufacturing to return to the city. The most notable of these steps is the transformation of the abandoned Studebaker plant into a technology center called Ignition Park.

The largest single employers are the University of Notre Dame (5,500 strong workforce), Beacon Medical Group (3,500), and South Joseph Regional medical Center (2,600).

There is also a degree of private industry in town, with AM General (manufacturer of the famous “Hummer” vehicle) headquartered in the city, with a workforce of around 2,800.

Breaking down the figures, it should come as no surprise that healthcare is the largest sector, employing around 17% of the total workforce, closely followed by educational services sector on 14%, with retail at 12% and accommodation and food at 9%.

The ongoing efforts to promote and regenerate the city however seem to be bearing fruit, with job growth at an annual 2% for 2016, following on from 3% in 2015, showing that his is definitely a city on the rise.
