US Recovery Tracker blossoms as temperatures rise - iPad

The US Recovery Tracker rose 1.3ppts to 90.2 in the week ended April 9, its first reading above 90 since March 2020 and its seventh consecutive weekly gain. Progress was broad-based despite a slight worsening of health conditions as improving economic activity and rising vaccinations offset the climb in cases.

  • Stronger mobility led the weekly gain as households capitalized on warmer weather and broader vaccine diffusion. 
  • Regional recoveries firmed, with 33 states recording higher readings.
