Rate Profile Information for CFNAI
The Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI) provides useful information on the current state of economic activity and inflationary pressures in the United States. Movements in the CFNAI closely track periods of economic expansion and contraction, as well as periods of rising and falling inflationary pressures. The 85 economic indicators underlying the CFNAI are drawn from five broad categories of data: output and income, employment, unemployment and hours, personal consumption, housing starts and sales, manufacturing and trade sales, and inventories and orders, each of these data series measures some aspect of overall macroeconomic activity.For a list of indicators used see http://www.chicagofed.org/digital_assets/publications/cfnai/background/cfnai_ind icators_list.pdf
