Michigan Now Enters Unexpected Recession Per New Data

Michigan now enters an unexpected recession per new data, which confirms the second worst economic plunge in the country.

The Federal Reserve Bank released its monthly State Coincident Index and it doesn’t make for good reading for people in Michigan, reports Ash Jurberg.

“The economies of sixteen U.S. states contracted between July and October, with Michigan experiencing the second most significant decline.”

Business Insider reports the coincident indexes “pull together four state-level indicators, including nonfarm payroll employment, the unemployment rate, average hours worked in manufacturing by production workers, and wage and salary disbursements deflated by the consumer price index.”

And according to this data, Michigan posted a -1.37% decline.

Does this mean the entire United States is now officially in a recession too? Not quite.

While Michigan has entered into a recession, the performances of other states may see the United States as a whole avoid a recession.

DataTrek Research cofounders Nicholas Colas and Jessica Rabe said the growth of most states “should be enough to keep the U.S. economy as a whole from falling into recession this quarter.”

However, sentiment on Michigan’s economy has slightly dipped.

The University of Michigan released a consumer sentiment index, showing people’s confidence in the economy decreased.

The November index shows a drop in consumer sentiment from 63.8 to 61.3.

Will many more states eventually follow? Banking experts continue to weigh in on the possibility of an entire US recession next year.
