OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- A monthly survey of business conditions shows economic growth in Oklahoma and in the Midwestern United States.

The November survey shows Oklahoma's business conditions index rose from 50.2 in October to 60 in November.

An index above 50 indicates an expanding economy.

The index for the nine states in the survey is 63.8, up from 61.6.

Creighton University economics professor Ernie Goss conducts the survey. He says record farm income led to the growth.
