Mid-America Business Conditions Remain at Healthy Level

After rising to a six-year high last month, the July Creighton University Mid-America Business Conditions Index, a leading economic indicator for the nine-state region stretching from Arkansas to North Dakota, fell to a still solid reading according the latest monthly survey results.

The Business Conditions Index, which ranges between 0 and 100, fell to 56.1 from June’s 62.3. This is the eighth straight month the index has remained above growth neutral pointing to solid growth for the region over the next three to six months. Almost one in five, or 19.2%, of supply managers expect their firm’s prices to drop in the second half of 2017.
