The Blue Book Launch of New Industry Velocity Index

The Blue Book Network® today announced The Blue Book Network Velocity Index, a new leading economic indicator for the construction industry. The Velocity Index measures the direction and magnitude of month-to-month changes in bidding activity in The Blue Book Network, accounting for seasonality. The Index provides Manufacturers, Distributors, General Contractors, and Sub Contractors a vital leading indicator of construction spending to inform their critical business decisions. The Blue Book Network® Velocity Index is the latest development from Blue Book’s Network Intelligence and Analytics team, focused on creating analysis and data visualization applications to support critical business decisions.

The Blue Book Network Velocity Index for November:

The Blue Book Network Velocity Index continued to reflect the October decline, dropping to 100.8 in November, a 4.8% decrease (December 2018 = 100).  The rate of decrease for the Index slowed considerably compared to the revised 13.9% drop seen in October, likely still reflecting concern over increases in COVID-19 rates. The Index remains strong, 19% higher than April’s revised low of 84.7
