State of the U.S. Economy

The problem is that I have the assignment sheet but I need someone to explain what I should do. What information I need to gather and what to do with it after I have gathered it. How do I go about explaining the state of the U.S. economy? I am including the assignment sheet so you may better help me. I do not need you to do the research for me but I do need a little more guidance than the assignment sheet. I have also gathered the L. A. times business section from January through March. Thank you.
