State Coincident Indexes in June 2022
by Charles Steindel  July 27, 2022

The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia's state coincident indexes in June continued to show some dispersion. Six states declined, while Massachusetts was up slightly more than 1 percent. At the 3-month horizon Montana and Arkansas saw drops, while 5 others (except for Hawaii, all in the middle part of the nation) had increases less than ½ of one percent, and 8 more had gains between ½ and one percent. Massachusetts, though, was up nearly 3 percent, and 5 other states clocked gains above 2 percent. Over the last 12 months, every state had gains of at least 3 percent, and 6 were up more than 10 percent, with West Virginia again number one, with a 13.5 percent increase.

Yet again, the independently estimated national figures of growth over the last 3 (.9 percent) and 12 (5.5 percent) months look substantively weaker than the state figures (in general, the weaker states were on the small side).

Michigan set a new monthly high in June, leaving Connecticut, Hawaii, and Louisiana as the only states that have not yet passed their pre-pandemic peaks in this series.
