Comparative Wrap-Up

Comparative Wrap-Up


Reports

May 05: Empire State
May 15: Philly
May 21: Kansas City
May 26: Richmond
May 26: Dallas


Notes:

  • Some regions use the term "order backlog" others "unfilled orders"
  • Some regions had a production index component, others not.
  • Richmond discussed prices paid and received on an annualized basis, not an index component that could be directly compared to the others.


Significant Points

  • The Dallas and Kansas City regions were both hammered by collapse in oil prices and oil related services.
  • Order Backlog was negative across the board.
  • Employee Workweek was down in four of five regions.
  • Prices Received was down in three of four regions.

In aggregate, these are weak to very weak reports.
