Job gains. Unemployment rate at 2.4 percent.

Year-to-year inflation was measured at 4.0 percent between May 2022 and May 2023, bringing this economic indicator to the lowest level seen in two years. While this suggests that efforts to fight inflation have been successful, the Federal Reserve is not expected to lower interest rates until inflation has decreased closer to the target of a 2 percent annual rate. With unemployment remaining low and job creation generally high across the country, it is still not clear whether the high interest rates will lead to a recession, as many have predicted over the past year.
