Notes:

This series represents the contributions of the consumer spending sector to the Midwest to the Relative Midwest Economy Index (RMEI). This series is a weighted average of state and regional indicators encompassing the entirety of the five states in the Seventh Federal Reserve District (Illinois, Iowa, Iowa, Michigan, and Wisconsin).

The series measures the growth in nonfarm business activity in the Midwest Region based on the consumer spending sector.

A zero value represents an average contribution to RMEI by the Midwest consumer spending sector, a rate historically consistent with the growth of the national economy, whereas positive values indicate above-average relative contribution; and negative values indicate below average relative contribution.
