Improving to 104.35, Other Services (except Public Administration), which includes offerings as varied as repair and maintenance to personal and laundry services, remains the top-ranked industry, followed by Construction at 101.66. Outpacing employment growth at the national level, the Construction index has been above 101 for more than four years. Rising to the third spot among industries at 100.49, Leisure and Hospitality improved 0.26% in December.

Ranked last among the industries tracked by the index, Manufacturing has been the weak spot of the US economy due to the high value of the dollar. The Manufacturing index is down 1.16% over the past year and fell below 99 for the first time in five years to close 2015.
