BLS Data By Geography
NEW An Analysis of Southern energy expenditures and prices, 1984-2006. In the South, where heavy usage of electricity and gasoline causes consumers to spend a larger-than-average share of their budgets on energy-related goods and services, energy prices have increased sharply in recent years. On the whole, however, energy expenses actually made up a smaller share of Southern budgets in 2006 than they did in 1984.
NEW The effects of Hurricane Katrina on the New Orleans economy. Hurricane Katrina devastated the New Orleans economy; tourism, port operations, and educational services, the foundation of the city's economy, survived, offering a base for recovery.
