Charlotteusa By The Numbers 3 31 2010


Published on

The Charlotte Regional Partnership’s monthly By The Numbers is the only report of its kind. Easy-to-read charts not only compare employment numbers in the current and prior years for each of our 16 counties, the report breaks down employment changes by industry. It compares the Charlotte region with the other six partnership areas in North Carolina and other major Southeast regions. Charts show at a glance year-to-year comparisons of the national unemployment rate, consumer confidence and home sales indices. The report also summarizes Charlotte USA locations, expansions, closings and layoffs for each month fiscal year-to-date. And there are extras, such as taxable sales within the region.
