The University of South Carolina’s economists at The Darla Moore School of Business unveiled their 2017 economic forecast and they expect gains for the state this upcoming year. The state continues to add more jobs and expects incomes to rise for S.C. families. Job growth is expected to be at 2.6% and the unemployment rate should drop from 4.7% to 4.5% in the next year.
Joey Von Nessen, a researcher, said “South Carolina’s economy is growing at a healthy pace, and we expect the state to continue to build on this momentum in 2017.”
