Local economy shows slight growth in third quarter of 2016

PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

Look for modest growth in the local economy in the coming months.

A new survey finds two local indicators up, with another down.

Bradley University's snapshot of our local economy finds 20 percent fewer new unemployment claims, more jobs in hospitality, entertainment, retail and wholesale for the third quarter of 2016.

Other highlights include a slight- nearly seven percent- uptick in homes for sale in the Peoria-Pekin metropolitan area.
