ALEXANDRIA, Va.—A new forecast from NCUA says the economic outlook for 2015 is solid, but rising unemployment in oil-producing regions are making that forecast slightly less sunny than it was a few months ago.

The 12-minute video, available here, features NCUA Chief Economist John Worth discussing interest rate implications, the employment picture, oil-related issues in various states and regions, and more. The video also recaps the recent Federal Open market Committee announcement, along with CU issues from the end of 2014.

This video and previous update are available on NCUA's YouTube channel.
