Tennessee economic report
Six years of year-over-year growth coupled with historically low unemployment rates indicate Tennessee’s economy won’t slow down anytime soon, according to a report by the Secretary of State's office. There were 9,326 new entity filings in the third quarter of 2017, representing a 4.8 percent increase compared to the same time last year. “Every quarter these reports confirm that Tennessee’s leaders have created a wonderful climate where businesses can thrive. Hopefully, this marked success attracts more businesses to call the Volunteer State home,” said Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett. The Tennessee Quarterly Business and Economic Indicators report is created to provide a periodic snapshot of the state’s economy based on a variety of information, including new business data from the Division of Business Services. The state’s unemployment remains at a record-breaking 3 percent in October after first hitting the milestone in September. Tennessee’s unemployment rate is now well below the current national average of 4.1 percent. The national economy grew 3 percent in the third quarter compared to the quarter before it thanks to more jobs, growing housing starts, declining auto sales and falling gas prices nationally.
