Statement From LIA Chief Economist John Rizzo on the Siena Research Institute Report
By: Dr. John A. Rizzo
"The Siena Research Institute reports today that Long Island was the only MSA in New York State to show improvement in consumer sentiment for the fourth quarter of 2013 and one of two MSA's for which future sentiment is up. This likely reflects strong job growth and relatively low unemployment on Long Island as well as an improving housing market" said John Rizzo, LIA Chief Economist.
