Notes: Releases are typically made in the first week of each month and cover data for two months prior. The headlines above are for the initial or preliminary values in each release. The current version of the leading index may have different values due to revisions in index methodology and data. The coincident and lagging indexes are also discussed in the leading index releases, except for the star (*) cases where a second release was made because of delays in the availability of data.
