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.

Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) is based on monthly questionnaire surveys of carefully selected companies which provide an advance indication of what is really happening in the private sector economy by tracking changes in variables such as output, new orders, stock levels, employment and prices across the service sector. The PMI is the first economic indicators for each month, providing accurate evidence of changing economic conditions well ahead of comparable government statistics. The index is presented as an index with a value between 1-100. Values above 50 indicate that the economic outlook is positive. Alternately, readings below 50 mean future outlook is less favourable.

Record of the difference between exports of goods and services and imports of goods and services. In the broad sense, this balance is conceptually equal to net exports of goods and services, which is a component of gross domestic product (GDP). Exports are compiled from Shippers' Export Declarations. Imports are compiled from the US Custom Services' Automated Commercial System (ACS). Data refer to general trade and exclude transactions with the US military stationed abroad. Exports include exports of US merchandise plus re-exports of foreign merchandise and exclude in-transit shipments and low value non-commercial shipments. Exports are valued on a f.a.s. basis (free along side). Imports include both entries for immediate consumption and entries into bonded warehouses. Reimports are included and attributed to the country of exportation. Imports are valued on a c.i.f. basis (cost, insurance, freight). Imports are reported in US dollars with an exchange rate given by the US Custom Service. The geographic area covered is the United States Customs area (includes the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico), the US Virgin Islands and US Foreign Trade Zones.
