  • Flash Index up in July | Institute of Government and Public Affairs
    July The U of I Flash Index rose to 106 6 in July from its 106 4 level in June The index has been steady for more than two years it has remained in the 106 0 107 2 range for the last 26 months This stability does not mean that the Illinois economy is not expanding but that it is growing at an even rate Any reading above 100 indicates economic growth Two years of steady growth has had a significant impact on the state s unemployment rate The rate is now below 6 0 percent nearly back to pre recession levels Similar to the nation as a whole Illinois steady growth and reduction in the unemployment rate are welcome said J Fred Giertz who compiles the Flash Index for the Institute of Government and Public Affairs However economic growth is still slow in comparison to past recoveries This has produced stagnant wage growth and low workforce participation rates The national economy is only growing at around a 2 percent growth rate falling back from the above 4 percent levels registered in the second and third quarters of last year As suggested last month the state budget stalemate does not appear to have had a significant impact on the economy yet Giertz said This may change if the impasse continues and state spending cuts take effect After adjustments for the new individual and corporate tax rates individual income tax and corporate tax receipts were up moderately while sales revenues were down slightly in real terms from the same month last year The Flash Index is a weighted average of Illinois growth rates in corporate earnings consumer spending and personal income Tax receipts from corporate income personal income and retail sales are adjusted for inflation before growth rates are calculated
