Syracuse, NY -- A report to be released today by the Brookings Institutionsays the pace of economic decline slowed in most of the nation's 100 largest metropolitan areas in the second quarter, but that the differences in overall performance among metro areas remained stark.
"Signs at the national level that job and income losses are slowing continue to mask the highly variable performance of individual metropolitan economies," said Alan Berube, research director of the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings, a Washington, D.C., think tank, and co-author of the report.
The Syracuse area's housing market had one of the strongest rankings of any metro area.
