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. This is the final estimate of the index.

The Ifo Business Climate Index is based on Ca. 7 000 monthly survey responses of firms in manufacturing, construction, wholesaling and retailing. The firms are asked to give their assessments of the current business situation and their expectations for the next six months. They can characterize their situation as “good”, “satisfactorily” or “poor” and their business expectations for the next six months as “more favourable”, “unchanged” or “more unfavourable”. The balance value of the current business situation is the difference of the percentages of the responses “good” and “poor”, the balance value of the expectations is the difference of the percentages of the responses “more favourable” and “more unfavourable”. The business climate is a transformed mean of the balances of the business situation and the expectations. The index uses 100 as a centreline between positive and negative outlooks. The further the value is from 100 the stronger the sentiment.

The Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI) is a monthly index designed to gauge overall economic activity and related inflationary pressure. The CFNAI is a weighted average of 85 existing monthly indicators of national economic activity. It is constructed to have an average value of zero and a standard deviation of one. Since economic activity tends toward trend growth rate over time, a positive index reading corresponds to growth above trend and a negative index reading corresponds to growth below trend.

Estimates of new single-family houses sold and for sale are obtained from the Survey of Construction (SOC). SOC is comprised of two parts: (1) Survey of Use of Permits (SUP) which estimates the amount of new home sales in areas that require a building permit and (2) Non-permit Survey (NP) which estimates the amount of new home sales in areas that do not require a building permit. A house is considered sold when either a sales contract has been signed or a deposit accepted. Included in the estimates are houses for which a sales contract is signed or deposit accepted before construction has actually started. The estimates also include houses sold while under construction or after completion. The survey does not follow through to the completion ('closing') of the sales transaction, so even if the transaction is not finalized, the house is still considered sold. A house is considered for sale when a permit to build has been issued in permit-issuing places or work has begun on the footings or foundation in nonpermit areas and a sales contract has not been signed nor a deposit accepted.

The Texas Manufacturing Outlook Survey (TMOS) is a monthly survey among executives, who report on how business conditions have changed for a number of indicators, such as production, new orders, employment, prices and company outlook. Respondents are also asked to report on how they perceive broader economic conditions to have changed (general business activity). Answers cover changes over the previous month and expectations for activity six months into the future. A prevailing number of respondents reporting an increase suggests that the indicator has increased over the prior month.
