Mid-America Manufacturing Continued to Rebound in March

The Creighton University Mid-America Business Conditions Index, an economic indicator for a nine-state region stretching from Arkansas to North Dakota, dipped to a still healthy level for March, according the latest survey results.

The Business Conditions Index, which ranges between 0 and 100, slipped to 60.1 from February’s strong 60.5. This is the fourth straight month the index has advanced above growth neutral.

“The overall index over the past several months indicates a healthy regional manufacturing economy, and points to positive growth for both manufacturing and nonmanufacturing through the third quarter of this year,” said Ernie Goss, Ph.D., director of Creighton University’s Economic Forecasting Group.
