#Shutdown – Which Economic Reports Will Be Released & Which Will Be Postponed

Coutesty of WSJ
By Josh Mitchell and Jeffrey Sparshott

The U.S. government shutdown will halt releases of most official gauges of the economy. Private organizations produce some measures that could be used to track the economy, such as gauges from the Institute for Supply Management. Government organizations that operate outside of the federal appropriations process, such as state unemployment agencies and the Federal Reserve, also will release their data.

Here’s what we will learn and won’t learn, through reports from the public and private sectors, over the next month:
