The Arizona economy is still generating solid economic growth, with job gains above the national rate but well below the long-run state average. The housing market is improving, although the level of building activity remains low. Overall, the state is on pace to generate job, income, population, and retail sales gains in 2013, with faster growth expected during the next two years.
