The composite indexes are used to identify the volume of overall business activities by composing percentage changes of selected indicators. There are three types of composite indexes. The leading index, which tends to precede the coincident index by a few months. This is used to anticipate changes in the direction of the economy. The coincident index. This coincides with the business cycle. This is used to identify the current state of the economy. The lagging index. This tends to lag behind the coincident index by about six months. This is used to confirm turning points and business cycle phases. In general, increasing coincident index reflects that the economy is in an expansion phase, and decreasing coincident index reflects that the economy is in a contraction phase. The magnitude of the changes in the coincident index reflects the tempo of the expansion or contraction phases. Currently, the composite indexes use 29 series of indicators in total: 12 leading indicators, 11 coincident indicators, and six lagging indicators. The list of selected series of indicators is reviewed each time the economy goes through one complete cycle.
