Macroeconomic Indicator Data

Economic indicators are statistics that help indicate the direction of an economy. They are of three main types: (1) Leading indicators that attempt to predict the economy's direction, (2) Coincident indicators that show up together with the occurrence of associated economic activity, and (3) Lagging indicators that become apparent only after the occurrence of associated economic activity.
