Every state disproportionately affected by the great recession did. Note how far Nevada fell after decades of growth in all categories.

I remember reading five years ago that Detroit was the only metropolitan area with at least 1,000,000 population that did worse than Atlanta in "real" income growth during the 2000s. Maybe this decade will be better, but I do know that the cost of living in Atlanta increased enough during the 2000s that it sapped a lot of the economic optimism of the 1980s and 1990s. Atlanta seems to be maturing as a city now, though, so we'll see what happens.
