CPA Reshoring Index

The CPA Reshoring Index is the first index that measures the market share of US manufacturers in US manufacturing demand. Based entirely on federal government data, CPA calculates and publishes the Reshoring Index quarterly.

Job Quality Index

The Job Quality Index measures the quality of American jobs as a ratio of high-quality jobs to low-quality jobs. Quality is defined as the mean weekly wage for all US production/nonsupervisory workers. Over the last 30 years, the growth in low quality jobs as manufacturing jobs are lost and replaced by service jobs, many of them low-wage, low-hour, has moved the index down. The JQI is published monthly.
