Nowcasting Report
Our model produces a “nowcast” of GDP growth, incorporating a wide range of macroeconomic data as it becomes available.


April 21, 2017: Highlights
  • The FRBNY Staff Nowcast stands at 2.7% for 2017:Q1 and 2.1% for 2017:Q2.
  • Mixed news from this week's data releases left the nowcast for Q1 and Q2 essentially unchanged.
  • Negative surprises from the Empire State Manufacturing Survey and housing starts offset positive surprises from industrial production, capacity utilization, and building permits.
