The Decision Analyst U.S. Economic Index stood at 111 in April 2017, a decrease from its December 2016-January 2017 level of 114. The index has declined over the last four months which could be an statistical aberration but only time will tell.


The Economic Index tends to lead U.S. economic activity by 6 to 12 months.  Whenever the Decision Analyst Economic Index is greater than 110, it tends to signal an expanding economy. An Index value of 90 to 110 suggests a no-growth or slow-growth economy, and near or below 90 generally indicates economic contraction.
