Arkansas is classified as one of the west south central states. The southwestern section of the state, with its cattle and oil fields, has the feeling of the Western Plains. Dairy farms and orchards in the northwest seem more akin to parts of the Corn Belt, while the cotton plantations in the east toward the Mississippi River are reminiscent of the Deep South.

Arkansas’s natural resources are abundant water; vast forests of quick-growing pines and valuable hardwoods; and extensive deposits of oil, natural gas, bauxite, and many other minerals.

Arkansas entered the Union on June 15, 1836, as the 25th state. Until the 1950s Arkansas was primarily an agricultural state. Farming was the chief source of income, but a meager source for many, particularly in the uplands, and many people left Arkansas in search of a better livelihood. Then, Arkansas, aided by coordinated planning and new developments in transportation and power production, began to industrialize very rapidly. By the end of the 1950s manufacturing had surpassed farming as the chief source of income, and in the 1990s Arkansas had an economy dominated by the manufacturing and service sectors. Tourism has also become important. The diversified and fairly well-balanced economy is reflected in the state’s official nickname as The Land of Opportunity. Arkansas is also called The Natural State by tourism promoters. The name Arkansas is taken from the Arkansas River, which is named for the Native Americans of the Arkansa tribe. The s was added as a plural, though it remains silent in the pronunciation formally adopted by the state’s legislature. Little Rock is the capital and largest city of Arkansas.

Arkansas ranks 28th among the states in size, and it covers 53,182 square miles, including 1,107 square miles of inland water. Its maximum extent north to south is 3,240 miles, and east to west 276 miles. The mean elevation is about 650 feet.

Except in the Ozark and Ouachita uplands, where temperatures vary considerably from ridge to valley, the climate throughout Arkansas is fairly uniform. Summers are long and moderately hot, and winters are short and relatively mild. However, northward and westward from the Coastal Plain, there is a gradual change from warm winters and hot, humid summers to the clearer, brisker, drier weather and wider range of temperatures associated with the Interior Plains. January temperatures in most of Arkansas average between 38° and 46° F. July averages are between 78° and 82° F throughout most of the state. They are usually in the middle upper 70°s in the Ozark and Ouachita uplands. Daytime highs in July are frequently in the middle 90°s and sometimes the temperature rises to the lower 100°s F.

Arkansas receives about 40 to 50 inches of precipitation a year, and some areas receive even more. Most of the rain comes during winter and spring and at times is so heavy as to cause flooding. Snow is rare in the south but amounts to more than 10 inches a year in the mountains.
