New Report Says Midwest Business Conditions Saw Improvement in November

Posted: Updated:

A new monthly economic report for nine Midwest states says business conditions improved only slightly in November.

The monthly survey's overall economic index crept up to 51.2 in November. That's just above the growth-neutral 50 points recorded in October, the lowest level since 2012.

Creighton University economist Ernie Goss says business leaders are feeling more optimistic after the nation's leaders agreed to a temporary fiscal deal that ended the partial government shutdown on October.

Goss also says the region's heavy manufacturers reported solid increases in new export orders in November.

Besides Nebraska, states included in the survey are: Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma and South Dakota.
