HSU released its monthly Economic Index for August, and although some sectors have seen small decreases in value, overall Humboldt County is experiencing an economic gain that will hopefully be an ongoing trend. Home Sales, Hospitality, and Lumber have all seen an increase in numbers this past month, while the two sectors that are lagging behind (but not by significant amounts) are Retail Sales and Local Employment. It’s important to consider this small decrease in employment against the larger national figures, which have also seen a slight downturn as well during August.
