Latest indicator projects strong economic growth in Nebraska
1 May 2017
An economic indicator tracked by the University of Nebraska projects strong growth for the state the remainder of this year.
Bureau of Business Research Director Eric Thompson at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln says the latest leading economic indicator is trending upward.
“It’s two consecutive months of a sharp increase in the leading indicator both January and February, which suggests that the growth will pick up in the Nebraska economy about mid-year,” Thompson tells Nebraska Radio Network affiliate KLIN. “We should see strong growth now in the second half of 2017.”
