Tennessee economic report
Tennessee’s economy continues to grow in a robust start to 2017, according to a report released Monday by the Secretary of State's office. There were 10,372 new business filings in the first quarter, representing an 8.7 percent increase over the same time last year. As of April 1, there were 259,000 active businesses in Tennessee, representing a 5.2 percent increase compared to the first quarter in 2016. “These strong numbers give us a good idea that Tennessee’s economy will continue to grow. It’s obvious that Tennessee has a climate that continues to attract new businesses,” said Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett. Domestic firms account for 84 percent of all new entity filings, while foreign entities make up the remaining 16 percent. The state’s unemployment rate in April was 5.3 percent compared to the U.S. rate of 4.5. percent.
