More signs economy rebounding

Two recent reports offer the latest evidence that Mississippi’s economy is rebounding from the Great Recession. One report notes that Lafayette County’s jobless rate continues to fall. Local unemployment dropped from 7.6 percent in February to 6.9 percent in March. The state and local economies are expected to continue to gradually improve for the next three years before peaking in 2016, according to another report. (April 30, 2012, Page 5)
