The composite economic indexes are the key elements in an analytic system designed to signal peaks and troughs in the business cycle.

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.
