The Latest From IGPA

The Flash Index fell in March to 106.5 from its 106.8 level in February. This is the second month of decline for the index, which stood at 107.2 in January.

The lower readings suggest a somewhat slower rate of growth for the state. However, the Illinois economy is still expanding; any reading over 100 indicates growth. The index has remained in a narrow range from 106.3 to 107.2 the last ten months (see archive here).

The Regional Economics Applications Laboratory has posted its January 2014 Illinois Economic Review, which examines the job picture and outlook in the state.  Read it here.
