Economists: S.C.’s economy, driven by Charleston and Upstate, to outpace nation through 2017 - Post and Courier
If the writer bothered to look at the data, he would have seen the graph representing 3 month and year over year comparisons. On the graph, The dot for Columbia, Charleston and Greenville all overlap meaning the numbers are all in alignment. Not sure why the SC media perpetuates the notion that only Greenville and Charleston are growing. And, there is no discussion of the SC Charlotte counties. It is poor and/or lazy journalism. But, it is a small town paper.

You're right. No one outside of Charleston reads the P&C anyway, so who cares.

The problem is that many times I have read the same comments in The State from the same economists. They leave Columbia out of the conversation in that newspaper, too, when the topic is the state's growing economy.

Matt ... back to the data ..and your earlier comment...that the gain seems to be reduced by the end of the year... the mid year numbers are not seasonally adjusted .. the year ends are ... so summer employment reflected in the June numbers are gone by December.... affects all three major cities in various amounts .Im guessing here ... but it may be that Charleston has less seasonality ... since the tourist season seems to have become longer ... and well into December... slows down in January and February nowadays instead of October in years past.. and ramps up again in March.
