For the most part, US economic indicators continue to look solid despite all the worries.The Philly Fed State Coincident Index tracks employment, unemployment, manufacturing hours and wages. It is visualized with a map, where red shows declines and green shows gains.

In March 2009 the map was entirely red,meaning that most indicators were still ugly.
