The Ohio Chamber of Research Foundation recently released its 4th quarter 2018 Prosperity Pulse survey results.

The report highlights the following:

The statewide Prosperity Pulse measured at 103.5, a drop from the previous record high of 139.9. 
A decrease in planned capital expenditures and in reported unfilled jobs revealed a sense of apprehension among business leaders.
The decrease can be attributed to the impact of the partial federal government shutdown, and uncertainty regarding potential future economic instability.
Nearly 71 percent of respondents still rated the economic climate as good to excellent.
All 100 percent of the companies surveyed plan to add employees in the 1st quarter of 2019.
Health care costs remain the top concern of Ohio business leaders.
