NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) for France decreased 0.1 percent in August 2019 to 104.1 (2016=100).

The Conference Board Coincident Economic Index® (CEI) for France increased 0.1 percent in August 2019 to 105.0 (2016=100).

The composite economic indexes are the key elements in an analytic system designed to signal peaks and troughs in the business cycle. The leading and coincident economic indexes are essentially composite averages of several individual leading or coincident indicators. They are constructed to summarize and reveal common turning point patterns in economic data in a clearer and more convincing manner than any individual component – primarily because they smooth out some of the volatility of individual components.

The updated data tables can be found here.

The 2019 data release schedule is available here.
