Mid-America Manufacturers See 10th Straight Month of Growth

The October Creighton University Mid-America Business Conditions Index, an economic indicator for the nine-state region stretching from Arkansas to North Dakota, climbed to a healthy reading, according to the latest monthly survey results.

The Business Conditions Index, which ranges between 0 and 100, rose to 58.2 from August’s 57.5. This is the 10th straight month the index has remained above growth neutral, continuing to point to positive growth for the region over the next three to six months. The durable, nondurable and nonmanufacturing sectors are adding jobs at a solid pace. Energy firms and manufacturers tied to energy are expanding at a strong pace across the region.
