The Federal Reserve reported a 1.4% increase in output last month after falling 12.5% in April and 4.6% in March, while economists polled by Reuters predicted on average an increase of 2.9% after the 11.2% decline initially announced for April.

Over one year, industrial production fell 15.3%, manufacturing production fell 16.5%, the Fed said.
