Oil Market Report

Since its inception in 1983, the IEA's Oil Market Report (OMR) has become recognised as one of the world’s most authoritative and timely sources of data, forecasts and analysis on the global oil market – including detailed statistics and commentary on oil supply, demand, inventories, prices and refining activity, as well as oil trade for OECD and selected non-OECD countries.

The OMR is closely followed by government officials and policy makers, oil market participants, strategic planners, industry officials, academics, NGOs, multi-government organisations, the financial community and others.

The OMR is the exclusive source for official government statistics from all OECD countries, as well as selected non-OECD countries, together with both historical datasets and supply-and-demand forecasts for the year ahead. Featuring tables, graphs and statistics, the OMR provides all the data necessary to perform ad-hoc analysis and track oil market developments and to identify trends in production, consumption, refining, inventories in OECD countries and prices for both crude and products.


Wow! What a fall we had in the Blue Ridge Mountains!

The Asheville area typically experiences one of the longest fall color seasons in the nation because of the wide variety of elevations and biodiversity found in the Blue Ridge Mountains. This season was no exception!

Fall colorꂾgan in late September at the highest elevations and continued into this first week of November in the lowest elevations.ꂯter a round of unexpected storms to end October and begin November, including two that packed a punch with high winds, the 2020 fall color season has largely passed its prime. That being said, you can still find pops of color throughout downtown and the Omni Grove Park Inn, and in the lowest elevations at Chimney Rock State Park and Lake Lure. And, our visitors have found some nice pockets of color hanging on east of Asheville in Black Mountain and near Catawba Falls.

Throughout this season, we heard from vistiors and those who live in the Asheville area who told us time and time again that this was an incredibly vibrant fall season. 

We had the opportunity to see those colors first hand as we traveled throughout the Asheville area during the past six weeks. As we say goodbye to the autumn colors for this year, we are looking back on some of our favorite fall images we&aposve captured and shared with you along the way.

For those of you who couldn&apost join us this year for fall in Asheville, we hope these pictures have helped you stay connected to the mountains. And, we hope these images inspire you to join us next fall, or sooner, here in the Land of Sky.

Thank you for following along with us!

Weekly Morbidity Statistics Report

The reporting time frame used for the Weekly Morbidity Statistics Report is a based on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) weeks.

This report is shared in the form of an Excel file, with eight separate sheets, and is produced on a weekly basis to help track select reportable diseases and conditions across Florida. The first sheet includes a table of state-level statistics on the number of cases of reportable diseases and conditions while the next six sheets include the same table by region. The last sheet includes a map of the regions used for these tables (though each regional sheet also has a small map).

Data presented here are from Merlin, Florida's web-based reportable disease surveillance system. Data in these tables are aggregated by the date the case was reported to the Bureau of Epidemiology, Florida Department of Health. Cases are assigned to Florida counties based on the county of residence at the time of the disease identification, regardless of where they became ill or were hospitalized, diagnosed, or exposed. Disease reporting is an ongoing process. Counts displayed are preliminary and will fluctuate over time as case reports undergo further investigation and validation. Counts include confirmed and probable cases. Counts presented in these tables may differ from counts presented in other tables or reports, depending on the criteria used. Changes in case definitions can result in dramatic changes in case counts. Please see the Florida Surveillance Case Definitions for more information on case definition changes.
