Recent History Of This Indicator
Forecasters are looking for continued strength in the January's Empire State index, at a consensus 18.6 vs December's 18.0. But there was a slight hint of weakness in the December report as unfilled orders contracted for a second month and hiring slowed noticeably. Six-month expectations for new orders were also down. Yet in general this report has been very strong for the last year and, as the first regional report to be released each month, has consistently and accurately telegraphed strength in subsequent reports including the Philly Fed and the Dallas Fed.

Definition
The New York Fed conducts this monthly survey of manufacturers in New York State. Participants from across the state represent a variety of industries. On the first of each month, the same pool of roughly 175 manufacturing executives (usually the CEO or the president) is sent a questionnaire to report the change in an assortment of indicators from the previous month. Respondents also give their views about the likely direction of these same indicators six months ahead.  Why Investors Care
 
[Chart]
The Empire State Manufacturing Survey has a much shorter history than the Philadelphia Fed's business outlook survey. The two series tend to move in tandem much of the time, although not each and every month. They are both considered leading indicators for the ISM manufacturing survey.
