The Mat-Su Economy
For decades, the Matanuska-Susitna Borough has been the state’s hot spot for growth. Between 2010 and 2016, its population grew by 15 percent while the state as a whole grew by 4 percent and nearby Anchorage by just 2 percent.
The borough has also long led the state for new home construction. In 2016, nearly half of Alaska’s new housing units were built in Mat-Su.
