Kansas City Fed Manufacturing Index  
Released On 7/27/2017 11:00:00 AM For Jul, 2017
PriorActual
Level11 10 

Highlights
Manufacturers in the Kansas City region are reporting strong conditions with the composite index steady at 10 in July. New orders are also at 10 and are being fed by domestic orders as export orders remain weak, at minus 2 in July. Total backlog orders are also weak at minus 1 following June's minus 6. But most other indications are solid with employment at a very strong 15 for a second straight month and with both inventories rising and delivery times slowing. Price indications also show improvement with costs showing increasing pressure and selling prices moving out of contraction. Most regional reports have been solid this month and, together with this morning's mostly positive durable goods report, point to building second-half momentum for the factory sector.

Definition
The Kansas City Fed index offers a monthly assessment of change in the region's manufacturing sector. Positive readings indicate monthly growth and negative readings monthly contraction. Readings at zero indicate no change. The headline number is the composite index, an average of the production, new orders, employment, delivery time, and raw materials inventory indexes.  Why Investors Care
