The Hospitality Index climbed over the past month, while the Home Sales, Retail Sales, and Employment Indices declined. The median home price decreased to $270,000. Leading Indicators are mostly rising in May. The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in Humboldt County decreased from 4.6 percent to 4.4 percent. ”

Thanks for posting this. I do have an issue with the “Help Wanted” index. This has been measured by the published help wanted ads in print publications. The drop in this index is most likely due to the fact that this is no longer the preferred method to advertise for jobs. These indexes do need to be updated as the economy and society evolve.
