“It’s interesting to note how the PRI has tracked with federal GDP data,” said Mike Emerson, IRCG Partner. “GDP decreased 9% in the second quarter compared with the same quarter in 2019 per the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) while the PRI averaged a decrease of 10.6%. In the third quarter, GDP was reported to decrease 2.9% while the PRI averaged an increase in 0.1%.”
