US | Recovery Tracker ends May firing on all cylinders

Research Briefing - US Recovery Tracker ends May firing on all cylinders

Our US Recovery Tracker finished May on a high note, rising 1.5ppts to 94.6 in the week ended May 28. A Memorial Day boost to demand, looser financial conditions, better health conditions, more robust production, and stronger employment lifted the tracker to a new recovery peak.

What you will learn:

  • Five of the tracker’s six dimensions rose in the final week of May.
  • Regional recoveries maintained an encouraging trajectory through the final week of May, according to our State Recovery Trackers (SRTs).
  • All regions except the East registered higher SRT readings, with the Southwest and Mountains recording the strongest advance.
