The Rushin: an index of Czech economic activity

The Rushin is a weekly index of economic activity for the Czech Republic. It is constructed to capture developments in economic activity with a minimal lag, while paying particular attention to turning points and the pace of economic growth.  The index, which we publish once a month, summarises the developments of four quickly available high-frequency indicators and six monthly indicators.
