In this issue of the MetroIntelligence Economic Update, I covered the following indicators:

  • Productivity fell 2.2 percent during fourth quarter of 2014, but rose 0.7 percent for all of 2014
  • Unemployment claims rise to nine-month high as frigid weather takes a toll
  • Factory orders dipped again in January as global demand cools and the dollar strengthens
  • Mortgage applications largely unchanged in latest survey
