NWI Index: May 2014 Release
School of Business and Economics or Indiana University Northwest
In May 2014 the Northwest Indiana Coincident Index rose 0.6 points from 137.6 (revised up from 137.5) to 138.2, the largest single-month increase since February 2012. This strong growth continues the trend of expansion following the significant weather-related decline in the early months of 2014. The forecast for economic growth over the next six months remains optimistic with moderate growth of about 1-2%.
The Indiana University Northwest School of Business and Economics developed the NWI Coincident Index to accurately gauge the dynamics of our region's economy. Think of it as a monthly “snapshot“ to measure our region's progress. Are we expanding? Contracting?
