What do the different colors of lines represent in ECRI charts?

There is a standard color code used for the line colors in our charts:

Green denotes a leading series.
Blue denotes a coincident series.
Pink denotes a lagging series.
Red denotes a leading price (level or growth) series.
Black denotes a coincident price (level or growth) series.

Grey-shaded areas represent business cycle recessions, or cyclical downswings, in the level of a series.

Orange-shaded areas represent growth rate cycle downturns, or cyclical downswings, in the growth rate of a series.

Green-shaded areas represent cyclical downswings in a price level series.

Blue-shaded areas represent cyclical downswings in a price growth rate series.

Other colors and shaded areas may be used occasionally for data that do not fit any of the above descriptions.

Testimonial

I find that ECRI's historical knowledge of economic cycles and data is almost as important to me as your indicators of future cycles.

Over the last 15 years, [ECRI] has gotten all of its recession calls right, while issuing no false alarms. Oct. 2011
- The New York Times
"eerily accurate"
- National Public Radio
I have to pay attention to those people and indicators that have pointed in the right direction - even when they've gone against the crowd (and my opinion at the time). One such outfit is the Economic Cycle Research Institute, whose various leading indicators actually have done just that - lead where things were headed.
- Randall Forsyth, Barron's
ECRI has had a very stellar record. They've been making pretty bold calls and going against the conventional wisdom. So far their record has been one of the most impressive, and has been written up in the press as well as talked about in policy circles.
- IMF
No one speaks with more authority about the economy's turning points.
