U.S. households will see their median income rise 1.7% this year, according to the latest report from the Federal Reserve, the central bank, and a panel of economists.
The report is the latest sign of how rapidly incomes are rising, as the nation’s population grows by a projected 1.3 million people each year.
U.N. agencies have also forecast that the U.K. economy will grow by 2.1% this decade.
UPI/Shannon Stapleton/Pool via Bloomberg News More:U.S.-bound sales of U.L.P. products in the first quarter were the fastest in seven years.
The first quarter of 2016 saw an increase of 3.5%, according to U.A.E.A., which oversees the U-shaped curve.
Sales of U-loans were up 0.4% from the same period last year, the most since 2008, when U.P.-backed credit boomed.
The U.F.L.-CME Group, the biggest U.W. bank, has been pushing for the U1.2 trillion loan program to be expanded.
“A U.U. is the new normal,” said Kevin Mascaro, chief economist at Credit Suisse.
The expansion in credit is part of a broad expansion in financial services that has created more jobs than the economy can handle, he said.
The increase in household wealth is also a sign that a more dynamic economy is beginning to emerge, said James Daley, chief market strategist at Credit Agricole.
The financial sector has been growing, but not as fast as the rest of the economy.
The Fed report also pointed to stronger economic growth in the third quarter, but that was more modest than in the previous two quarters.
In a separate report Thursday, the Labor Department said that the unemployment rate, which has remained stubbornly above 6%, fell to 5.9% in March from 6.9%.
It also revised the unemployment report upward to 6.4%, from 6% last month.
The unemployment rate fell to 7.9%, the lowest since September 2014, from 7.8%.
The labor market has recovered to full employment in the U:S., which is the key measure of economic health, said Ben Bernanke, Federal Reserve chairman, in a speech Friday.
“There are still a lot of people out there looking for work, but more than half of those people are employed, and those that are working are working at rates that are better than what we had before the recession,” Bernanke said.
The labor market, he added, will remain robust through the rest, “until we have a robust recovery that brings real wage gains and incomes back up.”
A broader survey released Thursday by the BLS, the UBS Group and Wells Fargo said that more Americans are looking for jobs in the economy than ever before, but many are discouraged.
The survey, which surveyed more than 600,000 Americans, showed a sharp fall in the number of Americans saying they are “very” or “somewhat” interested in getting a job.
In April, the number was just under 50%, up from around 44% in April 2015.
The BLS said that is because Americans are more likely to be looking for a new job, or are in the process of looking for one.
In March, nearly six in 10 Americans said they were “very interested” in getting an offer for a job, down from around seven in 10 in 2015.
While the job market has returned to full strength, it’s not all good news.
The economy’s growth slowed in April, to a 5.7-year low, according a survey of economists by Barclays.
And the jobs report is a mixed bag, showing a drop in the employment rate, the unemployment rates and growth.
The unemployment rate remains the highest in nearly four years, at 7.4%.
The BPS has been raising its estimate of full employment, which is a measure of how much people are able to work full time without taking a job or feeling like they are out of work.
“We are seeing very strong job growth,” said Stephen Moore, a senior economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
The Labor Department is predicting a rate increase of 4.9 percent in the second quarter, to 7%.
In its jobs report, it said that job creation has been picking up, but is still weak, with an unemployment rate that is above 6%.
The economy grew at an annual rate of 3% in the three months through March, the fastest pace since December 2009, when the unemployment hit 5.1%.
That pace is faster than the 3.9-percent pace in February, when it was 4.5%.
Economists have been watching the jobs market closely.
The Labor Department projects that the economy will add a further 4 million jobs this year.
