Monitoring Economic Activity in Real Time Using Diffusion Indices: Evidence from the Fifth District

We provide an analysis that parses out the conditions under which diffusion indices based on disaggregated information are informative about overall economic activity.

In the Fifth Federal Reserve District, for example, this margin captures the bulk of variations in aggregate ...

Finally, the model is used to provide forecasts of foreclosure rates conditioned on possible paths of labor market ...

From Stylized to Quantitative Spatial Models of Cities

In contrast, quantitative spatial models impose far fewer restrictions in the way that these variables ...
