Population Change
The North had a high population level because of the increase in industrialization and jobs.
The Second Industrial Revolution caused several changes for the United States. For instance, the North and the Midwest became extremely popular because these regions economies were booming with jobs. Sadly, the South and the West weren't as fortunate. Personally, if I had to pick a region to live in, I would pick the Midwest. Life there was easier, efficient, and much more beneficial.
Their views clashed and no one could agree; Labor Unions were formed.
There was a major, noticeable gap between the rich and the poor.
The North had an industrialization economy and most people took to factory jobs.

Since the war had ended, their economy was basically a wreck. So they began to focus on having an agricultural economy.
The West's economy was terribly weak and had very little resources to transport
The economy in the Midwest was sky-high. Many immigrants came and helped the economy grow and become stronger.



The population here decreased because most of the African Americans left and started finding jobs elsewhere.
The west was poorly populated compared to areas like the North and the Midwest.
Millions of immigrants were flooding into the Midwest, therefore their population level was boosting.



Railroads were also very popular here, but African Americans stayed away from them mostly because of racial tension.
The railroad system was also implemented into the West. The roads covered great distances and were very efficient.
The Midwest's transportation was essentially the same as the West's. Chicago because the gateway between the East and the West.
