CNN Business and Moody’s Analytics have joined together in creating a national “Back To Normal” index for rating and evaluating states recoveries to pre-covid levels. The index was created using 37 indicators including government statistics and information from private firms that evaluate economic trends in real time for each state. Recovery rates in the upper midwest region are now among the lowest and most stable in the country, and the regional economy has come back due to the shortened length of lockdown orders and less reliance in industries like energy and tourism that were devastated by the pandemic.
