August Data for RI
The August data for Rhode Island show an economy that is continuing to improve. The table below (click to enlarge) gives the values for a number of key variables. Note that a number of the values from last August were fairly weak, making them easy "comps" and not too difficult to beat. Strange as it might sound, that's how an economy pulls itself out of recession -- beating weak values forming a base to expand from.
