UM Releases Updated Economic Outlook

Substantial economic disruption has occurred since the University of Michigan’s RSQE released economic outlooks for the U.S. and Michigan economies in February 2020. Today, they released an updated set of interim forecasts has been released, which includes two scenarios – a short-lived contraction in economic activity or an “effective mitigation scenario” and a “prolonged fallout scenario”.  The analysis is based on the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO’s) 2005 study “A Potential Influenza Pandemic: Possible Macroeconomic Effects and Policy Issues.”

View the full analysis or read a summary below:

RSQE expects an official recession to be declared in both scenarios considered. It remains possible for events to unfold in a more positive direction than the two scenarios.


On an annual basis, the United States real GDP growth in 2020 registers approximately  0.5  percent in the effective mitigation scenario and negative  1.8  percent in the prolonged fallout scenario, or roughly four percentage points lower than in the February outlook.  The level of real  GDP  in the effective mitigation scenario catches up to the previous forecast level by mid-2021, but in the prolonged fallout scenario, it runs substantially below the previous forecast level throughout the forecast horizon.


In the effective mitigation scenario, Michigan’s payroll employment count declines by approximately 155,000 jobs from the first to third quarters of 2020. In the prolonged fallout scenario, the decline is 400,000 jobs. Although in the former scenario, the state’s job count returns to its forecast path from the previous forecast by early 2022, it remains well below the previous expectations in the latter scenario.

Unemployment Rate

In the effective mitigation scenario, Michigan’s unemployment rate rises from 4.1 percent in 2019 to 5.8 percent in 2020, before declining back to  4.5  percent in  2021.  In the prolonged fallout scenario,  the state’s unemployment rate jumps to 8.1 percent in 2020 and 8.8 percent in 2021 before beginning to decline; it reaches a peak quarterly rate of 10.0 percent in the third quarter of 2020.

Key Points

  • There is limited economic information available, and the situation is evolving quickly.
  • Protecting people’s lives at the expense of short-term economic pain is justified on public health grounds and by long-term economic logic.
  • It is imperative for the federal and state governments to mitigate the pandemic’s economic damage to vulnerable people’s livelihoods.

Michigan still fights ‘brain drain,’ although outlook has improved

March 28, 2019


Brian McVicar


The Detroit Regional Chamber has launched a similar campaign., also launched last fall, aims to attract and retain recent college graduates by connecting them with other young professionals and spotlighting neighborhoods and networking opportunities. It includes a feature called “Text a Detroiter,” which enables users to text an “ambassador to get information and recommendations about the things you care about.”

Judging the impact of the site is difficult, because “we haven’t made a huge marketing push yet,” Handel said.

“We’re still kind of tweaking the website and getting feedback on it,” he said. “But it’s picking up traction.”

American Society of Employers’ (ASE’s) Quarterly Economic & Employment Survey results for second quarter 2018 see a decrease in the business outlook for manufacturing

The American Society of Employers (ASE), one of the nation’s oldest and largest employer associations, has released its 2018 Quarterly Economic & Employment Survey – Second Quarter results.

Highlights of ASE’s 2018 Quarterly Economic & Employment Survey – Second Quarter:

• Although most employers (55%) see no change in their future business outlook, a closer look at the data shows a negative trend in the economic outlook. Specifically, 15% of participants report worsening forecasts, up from just 10% in the previous quarter.
• Much of the decrease in business outlook was seen in the manufacturing sector. 18% of employers in that group report that their business outlook is declining. This compares to just 11% from the previous quarter.
• 71% of employers expect hiring levels to remain the same over the next six months. The number of employers expecting hiring levels to stay the same saw a 7% increase from the previous quarter.
• Data from the survey shows that the Production / Maintenance job function experienced the most significant turnover this quarter followed by Engineering.
• The Engineering job family was rated (41%) as the top “in demand” job function, followed by Sales / Marketing (30%) and Production / Maintenance (29%).
• Most participants (55%) indicated that the Trump administration’s trade tariffs have had no impact on their organization. Just 16% reported a negative impact.
• However, when asked if the tariff will have some future impact, 51% of manufacturing organizations responded, “Don’t Know.”

The survey results were announced by ASE President and CEO, Mary E. Corrado. “The business outlook data among the manufacturing sector is concerning given its importance to our region. Hiring appears to be plateauing in the face of economic uncertainty,” she stated.

Background information on the ASE 2018 Quarterly Economic & Employment Survey – Second Quarter

• 127 organizations from across Michigan participated.
• Organizations with one to 500 Michigan employees made up more than 83% of the survey sample, while organizations with 501 to 1,000 Michigan employees represented 10% of the sample. The remaining 7% of the sample comes from organizations with more than 1,000 Michigan employees.
• A variety of industries are represented, with manufacturing organizations representing just over 56% of the survey sample.
