The Northwest Indiana Coincident Index grew to 144.5 points in May, an increase of 0.2 (+0.1%). Steel production in the state rose by 61,000 net tons, approximately +3.1% month-over-month. Employment in Northwest Indiana continued to grow, adding roughly 2,700 jobs this month (+1.0%) as is typical for the season. Retail sales and average weekly hours worked in manufacturing remained largely unchanged in May, the latter holding steady at 41.9, the same as one year ago.
