Part V -Chart Room

The Business and Economic Chart Room contains key business and economic indicators that are useful in tracking and forecasting business and economic conditions.

Real-Time Business Conditions

The Aruoba-Diebold-Scotti business conditions index is designed to track real business conditions at high frequency. Its underlying (seasonally adjusted) economic indicators (weekly initial jobless claims; monthly payroll employment, industrial production, personal income less transfer payments, manufacturing and trade sales; and quarterly real GDP) blend high- and low-frequency information and stock and flow data.
