Consensus Economic Forecasting Commission background materials

October 24, 2012

Prior to each Consensus Economic Forecasting Commission meeting, the Office of Policy and Management, which staffs the Commission, assembles a set of background materials. These materials summarize the current economic environment and any recent developments since the Commission's past meeting. Special attention is paid to indicators of general economic activity as well as indicators for employment, personal income, and inflation (the Consumer Price Index), which are forecast by the Commission. Additional background may include updates on home prices and sales, heating and crude oil, and other topics of interest.

The background materials for the October 25, 2012, Consensus Economic Forecasting Commission meeting are now available.
