September 2010 Data

The September 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 September were fairly weak, making them easy "comps" and not too difficult to beat. Most notably, two of our strongest performers of late, Retail Sales and US Consumer Sentiment, failed to improve in September from a year ago. But other variables stepped in to take their place among improving parts of our economy.

Happily, I can say that Rhode Island's current recovery, which began in June of this year, has continued through September and shows no signs of disappearing.
