Abstract
The Northwest Indiana Coincident Index was up in October, increasing 0.3 points (0.2%) to 145.6. All four components saw gains this month with steel production leading on a percentage basis, up 58,000 net tons (3.0%) to 1.987 million. Retail sales and regional employment were both up by around 0.7%, typical for the season. Total employment currently stands at 278,700. Average weekly hours worked in manufacturing rose again to 42.0 (a change of 0.1, or 0.2%), the same as one year ago.
