Abstract
The year began with a sharp decline in employment that was offset by a large increase in steel production. In January the Northwest Indiana Coincident Index rose 0.6 points from 140.8 to 141.4. Regional employment fell by 9,200 jobs (-3.3%) while steel production rose by half a million net tons (+9.7%). The decline in employment is, in part, seasonal and is likely to rebound in the coming months.
