OMAHA, Neb. — A survey of supply managers in nine Midwestern and Plains states suggests the region will continue the modest pace of its recovery in the months ahead.

The Business Conditions Index for the Mid-America region rose to 55.9 in November from 52.3 in October. Organizers said in a report issued Wednesday that November was the 12th consecutive month that the index has remained above growth neutral.

The survey and report use a collection of indexes ranging from zero to 100. Organizers say any score above 50 suggests economic growth in the next three to six months, while a score below 50 suggests a contracting economy. States in the survey are Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma and South Dakota.
