  The geographic coverage for each of the areas are accessable from the list on the right side of the page.   The list on the left of this page contains most of the variables that are tracked for the forecasts. I update these pages as a byproduct of the geographic coverage.
  Finally, to track the update progress, flags for each of the pages that will show the status of each forecast. Just a simple coding with [u] meaning the site is updated, [p] meaning the site is partially updated, and [n] meaning I haven't gotten to the site yet.

20Feb09:   I did a forecast for Sacramento Chapter of the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) and here's the slideshow I used.

15Feb09:  The update in complete. Not a bright outlook, but not as bad for our local area as I expected when I started the update - but then I've always been an optimist. I may be doing some revisions between now and the July revise but only if I need to lower the expectations.

14Feb09:  Amador, Butte, Colusa, El Dorado, Glenn, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba Counties, the Sacramento and Yuba City MSA's, Sacramento, Colusa-Yolo and Sutter-Yuba CEA's and the Sacramento CSA are done, as well as Douglas County, Nevada, the Sacramento Region, California and the U.S., plus the Variables Page has been updated
18Jan09:  I've started with the U.S., revising everything but the GDP forecast. I also have finally updated the Douglas County, Nevada forecast that I missed back in July.

8Jan09:  The January revise begins.

26Aug2008:  The revise continues with Amador, Butte, Colusa, El Dorado, Glenn, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba Counties, the Chico-Paradise MSA, the Sacramento MSA, the Sacramento CEA, Truckee-Grass Valley MSA, Butte-Glenn CEA, Colusa-Yolo CEA, Yuba City MSA/CEA, the Sacramento Region and California done.

7Aug2008:  I've updated the Passengers Handled and Freight Handled forecasts for the Sacramento MSA, based on data for May and June - Big Impact on Passengers Handled.

31Jul2008:  Yeah, I know, it is suppose to be done by now but I've had a couple of major distractions to deal with and they should be completed by next week. So my new target date is August 15th.

26Jul2008:  The revise begins with El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo Counties and the Sacramento MSA.

10Jul2008:  I've started working on the July revise.
