How's the US economy doing? Shutdown makes it harder to say WASHINGTON (AP) — The partial shutdown of the U.S. government has begun to make it harder to assess the health of the economy by delaying or distorting key reports on growth, spending and hiring. Government data on home construction and retail sales, for example, won't be released next week because staffers who compile those reports have been furloughed.

With Macy's and Kohl's having said Thursday that their holiday sales were weaker than expected, a broader gauge of retail spending would have provided important clarity. That’s because up to 380,000 federal employees who aren’t working or being paid during the shutdown but who will return to work afterward could be counted as unemployed for January It may take some time to get a ‘clean’ read on the economy, economists at Bank of America Merrill Lynch said Thursday
