Change in Employment in Selected Industries, Dec 2007 - Dec 2010 Print
January 7, 2011

The big job gainers in December were the health care sector, which added 35,700 jobs, and the restaurant sector, which added 24,500 jobs. Health care employment has remained consistently strong through the downtown; although the December rate is somewhat higher than the 20,000 monthly pace over the last year. The jump in restaurant employment is also somewhat above the 15,000 pace over the year. This could mean slower growth in future months.

Median Sale Price of New Homes, June 2000 - Oct 2010 Print
November 30, 2010

The Census Bureau reported last week that the median price for a new home fell from $226,300 in September to $194,900 in October, a one-month decline of 13.9 percent. While new home sales prices are always erratic and the October data were pushed downward in part by a relative increase in sales in the low-cost South region, this is the lowest reported price since October of 2003, when the median price was $194,100. The October data suggests that house prices may again be falling rapidly.
