Industry is expected to decline over the 4 years to 2015 at a rate of 1.5% despite the 1.9% increase that is expected during the same period for US GDP growth.

Establishments are expected to stay relatively steady over the 4 years to 2015. Although at face value this might indicate that the industry is stable, most industry operators experienced steep declines during the recession.
