Anchorage Economic Developement Corporation released their mid-year economic forcast last week, and it's positive news for the most part.
Anchorage’s economy continues on a trajectory of slow to moderate economic growth. Mid-year indicators for 2014 point toward an additional 1,100 new private sector jobs by the end of the year.
Anchorage's population is estimated at 301,000 residents in 2013, 0.9 pecent increase over the previous year. It is projected that Anchorage’s population will continue to grow at a slow but steady pace of about 1 percent a year (roughly 3,000 new residents annually), again driven mainly by natural increase rather than in-migration, but also supported by growth in the job base.
