The Latest From IGPA

The U of I Flash Index rose to 106.6 in July from its 106.4 level in June. The index has been steady for more than two years: it has remained in the 106.0-107.2 range for the last 26 months. This stability does not mean that the Illinois economy is not expanding, but that it is growing at an even rate. Any reading above 100 indicates economic growth. 

The latest edition of the Illinois Economic Review from the Regional Economics Applications Laboratory shows the state's economy continuing its march toward peaks reached before the 2007-2009 recession. The report forecasts job growth of between 26,000 and 44,000 in the coming 12 months. Read the full report.
