August Alaska Economic Trends
August Trends details the results of our annual residential rental market survey, which shows rent is up slightly and vacancy has increased in most places since 2016. This issue also provides a look at federal military spending. Finally, we introduce a new feature this month, “Gauging Alaska’s Economy,” which provides four pages of key economic indicators for Alaska. This will give Trends readers the opportunity to track the big economic picture for the state each month, in one place.
