What does your state's economy look like?

Look at all that green!
Every month the Philadelphia Federal Reserve takes a look at economic indicators in each state to see which states are thriving and which states are not. The dark green areas are booming, light green represents modest improvement, and red is shrinking. How does your state look?

Things improved for 44 states in October. And over the past three months, according to Calculated Risk:
...the indexes increased in 45 states and decreased in five...This map was all red during the worst of the recession, and all green at times during the recovery.
Of course, the map doesn't show wage increases...
