On this page:

The Leading Indicator of Employment anticipates movements in the growth cycle of employment. It does this through the use of a composite index of series that have been shown to lead employment over the last two decades. When the leading indicator is rising (falling) following a trough (peak) employment may grow above (below) its long-term trend rate of growth following a lag.
