An economic indicator collected by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln dropped slightly in October, but university economists still predict moderate growth for the state economy.
The College of Business Administration's Leading Economic Indicator for Nebraska dropped point-zero-six in October, a slight decline following three months of growth.
The director of the Bureau of Business Research at UNL, Eric Thompson, says the state economy can absorb a slight decline.
The university expects growth over the next sixth months, with strong improvement expected as we enter a new year.
