Miami- Dade Economic Reports
AUGUST 2013 Labor Report
The latest data from August indicate that the pace of payroll employment experienced a significant setback, giving back the gains made in June and July. Total non-farm
payrolls (persons working in Miami-Dade) were up just 1,300 jobs over August 2012. This report provides a note on the industry composition of jobs gained in
the recovery that began near the end of 2009, compared to the jobs lost during the recession that began at the start of 2008. The analysis shows that the
average wage for the employment positions gained in the recovery is approximately 17% below the average salary of the jobs lost in the recession.
You can view the entire report including an analysis of discouraged workers.
2nd QTR Economic Report
Miami-Dade’s economy in the second quarter was able to maintain positive momentum, with steady private-sector-led improvements in the labor market. Home sales and values rose in the period from January to June, and initial filings of home foreclosures fell for three consecutive quarters. Commercial real estate in industrial, office and stand-alone retail space found occupancy rates and revenues per square foot improving. Consumers continue to show their willingness to increase spending, and businesses spent more on investment goods subject to sales taxes. Despite a reduction in the value of foreign export shipments, international trade from local ports continues to expand and support local economic growth.
