Leading Economic Index for China increased in December

China’s growth slowdown continues.

The Conference Board Leading Economic Index for China increased 1.1% in December, following a 0.8% increase in November and a 0.9% increase in October. Five of the six components contributed positively to the index in December.

"Consumer expectations and real estate remaining subdued, suggesting weak economic growth in Q1 2015."

"China's current economic activity picked up in December on the back of strong consumption and a surge in electricity production," said Andrew Polk, resident economist at The Conference Board China Center in Beijing. "Meanwhile, the leading economic index for China accelerated only slightly in December with consumer expectations and real estate remaining subdued, suggesting weak economic growth in Q1 2015."

The Conference Board Coincident Economic Index for China, which measures current economic activity, increased 1.1% in December, following a 0.1% increase in both November and October. All five components contributed positively to the index in December.

The Conference Board LEI for China aggregates six economic indicators that measure economic activity inChina. Each of the LEI components has proven accurate on its own. Aggregating individual indicators into a composite index filters out so-called "noise" to show underlying trends more clearly.
