The presentation explains the reason to have a local Business-Cycle Index, as well as the economic measures used to estimate the index.  The Business-Cycle Index is updated each month and included in the monthly publication Economic Indicators.  The local index also provides a tool to illustrate how the local economy’s growth stacks up against that of Texas, the nation, and other Texas metro areas. The presentation also covers the special focus topics included in Economic Indicators from the past year.
