Economic Statistics for 21 Feb 12
This is a fairly thin week for economic data, and today only has one statistics release of any interest.
The Chicago Fed National Activity Index rose from 0.17 last month, to 0.22 this month. The 3 month moving average was up sharply, though, to 0.14 from last month’s -0.19. Production, consumption, and housing remain a drag on the economy, however.
