Minnesota economy poised for growth: Minneapolis Fed report
Minnesota's economy is poised for above-average growth in 2013, the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis said Thursday.

The state's employment is expected to grow by "a solid" 2.2 percent and reduce the unemployment rate to 4.7 in 2013, the Fed said.

Minnesota's unemployment rate was 5.7 percent in November, the most recent month for which data is available.

The Minneapolis Fed also forecast that growth in personal income will exceed 5 percent this year.

"The Minnesota economy continued on its upward trend in 2012, and it looks like growth could accelerate in 2013," Minneapolis Fed Regional Economist Toby Madden said in a news release.

The Minneapolis Fed's quarterly publication, the fedgazette, has more details on the 2013 outlook.
