Recent History Of This Indicator
The Richmond Fed manufacturing index has, like other regional manufacturing reports, been running at unusually high levels which made December's 10-point cooling to a still elevated 20 welcome news. Growth in new orders slowed by nearly 20 points in December to 16 and backlogs fell into contraction at minus 4. But shipments at 24 and employment at 20 both remained unusually strong and hint at the risk of overheating. The Econoday consensus for January's index is 18.

Definition
This survey tracks business conditions in the Richmond Fed's manufacturing sector. The headline index is a composite of the new orders, shipments, and employment indexes.
