Chicago Fed’s Midwest Economy Index To Be Discontinued in June 2021

The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has announced they will discontinue the Midwest Economy Index (MEI) after its June 2021 release, given the discontinuation of several underlying data series and the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the remaining series since March 2020.

The MEI release will continue to be updated regularly on FRED for the two remaining release dates, May 28 and June 30, 2021.

More information about the discontinuation of the MEI is available on the Chicago Fed’s MEI home page.
