NEW YORK (Reuters) - A measure of future U.S. economic growth held steady at its highest level in more than three years while the annualized growth rate hit a four-week high, a research group said on Friday.

The index's annualized growth rate rose to 4.5 percent, the highest since the week ending August 16. The prior week's rate was revised up to 4.3 percent from 4.1 percent.
