Current Performance 2015

Percentage of Michigan retailers reporting increase (% Rep. Inc.), no change (% No Ch.) or decrease (% Rep. Dec.) in activity from same month, previous year.

* Index = Seasonally adjusted diffusion index. A diffusion index, which is the sum of the percent of respondents indicating increase and half the percent indicating no change, is calculated and then seasonally adjusted using the U.S. Census Bureau's X-11 Seasonal Adjustment procedure. Index values above 50 generally indicate an increase in activity, while values below 50 indicate a decrease.
