Consensus Outlook
After slowing at the outset of the year, the national activity index is back at its expansion best, posting 0.34 in April and 0.32 in March to indicate well above average growth. Though employment will give a boost to May, weakness in industrial production may hold the index back. Consensus for May is a further gain to 0.37.

The Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI) is a monthly index that tracks overall economic activity and inflationary pressures. The CFNAI is a weighted average of 85 existing monthly indicators of national economic activity. It is constructed to have an average value of zero and a standard deviation of one. Since economic activity tends toward trend growth over time, a positive index reading corresponds to growth above trend and a negative index reading corresponds to growth below trend.  Why Investors Care
