Georgia's largest industry -- real estate -- was also one of its weakest performing, as it lost $10 billion between 2009 and 2010.
Georgia's other major sectors grew slightly in 2010, but that growth was meager at best, resulting in a mere 1.4% rise in GDP in 2010.
Georgia's unemployment rate was 9.9% in April, down only slightly from its high at 10.4% at the end of 2009.
