Manufacturing in the Show-Me State reached a total of 66.8, up 13.1 points from January. A score over 50 indicates an expanding economy. The survey conducted by Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, tracks manufacturing industry metrics, including new orders, production, supplier delivery times, backlogs, inventories, prices, employment, import orders and exports, according to a news release.

    •    73.7 in new orders;
    •    76.3 in production;
    •    73.5 in employment;
    •    57.2 in delivery time; and
