It’s been five months of the Corona virus wreaking havoc on our lifestyles and the economy, and the end is not yet in sight. But at least one thing has changed since this downturn began. We are beginning to get data.

 

That might sound strange to you. Most of us have been swimming in data, much of it in impressive color maps and charts, on a daily basis since this entire episode began. Infection counts have replaced sports scores at our breakfast tables in the morning.

 

But data on economic activity are slower to arrive. What do they tell us about Montana’s experience? Relative to the nation and many other states, we have had a slightly less severe hit to our economy, as measured by preliminary job figures. Through June, those data show jobs down 23,000 compared to last year, better than all but three states in percentage terms.
