Survey of Tenth District manufacturers
Manufacturing activity in the Kansas City Federal Reserve District expanded in July but at a slightly slower pace than earlier in the year, according to a quarterly survey of manufacturers across the district. The survey takes a snapshot of manufacturing the first month of each quarter by asking plant managers about a variety of manufacturing indicators (Table 1). By most measures, manufacturing showed a modest expansion during July. Inventories of raw materials and finished goods were generally unchanged at district factories. Prices received for finished goods held steady, while prices of raw materials increased modestly. Overall, manufacturing remained stronger than a year ago, and manufacturers were optimistic about the outlook for the next six months.
