Notes
  • Short-term economic indicators play an important role in the assessment of current cyclical situations and in the establishment of forecasts. Broadly, two types of short-term indicators can be distinguished: qualitative indicators, reflecting businessmen’s subjective assessment of the cyclical situation (e.g., production prospects or judgements on orderbooks), and quantitative indicators, reflecting past developments of production or employment. The usefulness of qualitative indicators rests on their reliability to approximate the possible evolution of the quantitative ones. The present document shows the results of a pilot study for six industrial sectors in seven Member countries whereby short-term qualitative indicators are used to “nowcast” a quantitative indicator, the production index. The objective is to enhance the timeliness of short-term industrial statistics through estimation of data points for the most recent periods for which they are not yet available. From the current ... Les indicateurs économiques à court terme jouent un rôle important dans l'appréciation des situations conjoncturelles et dans l'établissement des prévisions. On distingue en général deux types d'indicateurs à court terme : les indicateurs qualitatifs, qui reflètent l'opinion subjective des dirigeants d'entreprises sur la situation conjoncturelle (par exemple, les perspectives de production ou l'appréciation des carnets de commandes), et les indicateurs quantitatifs, qui rendent compte de l'évolution passée de la production ou de l'emploi.

L'objectif est d'améliorer le ...
