Leading indicators and tendency surveys

The OECD business cycle clock



The OECD Business Cycle Clock  has been designed to better visualize business cycles - fluctuations of economic activity around their long term potential level - and  how some key economic indicators interact with the business cycle. (In our framework the GDP series represent the business cycle for each country).

The Business Cycle Clock is a dynamic tool which lets us perceive the leading, coincident or lagging behaviour of the other indicators presented.


This application has been developed based on the original concept of the Statistics Netherlands.
