Map: State-by-state economic outlook

The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia has compiled a forecast of economic conditions for each of the 50 states for the second half of 2010. The Fed combined variables such as average hours worked in manufacturing and the unemployment rate to produce a statistic called the "coincident index" to summarize each state's outlook. All but two state coincident indexes (Nevada and Montana) are projected to grow over the second half of 2010. Five states are projected to grow strongly (greater than 4.5 percent). Hover over each state for details.
