In order to release our regional forecasts as expeditiously as possible to clients, Moody's Economy.com® will begin posting our state-level forecasts to DataBuffet.com® on or around the 10th business day of each month, up to four days prior to the metro-level forecasts.
Previously, both were published at the same time. The national-level forecast will continue to be released around the fifth business day, and the metro-level on the 15th.
The target publication dates under the previous and current schedules are as follows. Other factors, such as the timing of federal employment data and of holidays, may cause actual dates to vary by two to three business days around these targets.
