“Timely Indicators of Entrepreneurship” measures quarterly the number of new enterprises across a number of countries where updated information is available. The values are presented as trend-cycle (2006=100), which is the underlying path reflected in data over the longer term, i.e. the combined long-term (trend) and medium-to-long-term (cycle) movements in the original series.
