State, national economies are on track for growth
The Boston Globe - 01/01/2016
Massachusetts is likely to hit full employment this year, defined by local economists as an unemployment
rate of about 4.5 percent, said Alan
Clayton-Matthews, a Northeastern University economics professor.
Clayton-Matthews forecasts that unemployment will decline to 4.3 percent by the end on 2016, down from 4.7 percent in November.
The health care, technology, and education sectors that have bolstered the Massachusetts economy will continue to drive growth in the state, Clayton-Matthews said.
