While key first-quarter economic indicators for the Memphis area aren’t up across the board, they largely indicate positive trends. 

For a deeper dive into those figures, we offer the latest edition of The Memphis News Economic Overview, a collection of data that capture a snapshot of the local economy during the first quarter.

Inside, readers can take a closer look at data covering everything from Memphis-related stock trends to employment figures and real estate data, among other economic barometers. 

Our hope is that the range of data paints as clear a picture as possible of the Memphis-area economy, giving readers and business leaders a more detailed look at the current landscape to help them make the decisions they need to make for their own enterprises.
