The use of short-term indicators and survey data for predicting turning points in economic activity
Roberto Astolfi, Michela Gamba, Emmanuelle Guidetti, Pierre-Alain Pionnier
After reviewing the main features of the statistics available in the MEI to inform policy makers, this paper discusses the performance of the CLIs during the Great Recession. This performance is assessed using both ex-post and real-time analyses. The analyses evaluate the ability of the OECD...

Measuring GDP in a Digitalised Economy
Nadim Ahmad, Paul Schreyer
Recent years have seen a rapid emergence of new disruptive technologies with new forms of intermediation, service provision and consumption, with digitalisation being a common characteristic. These include new platforms that facilitate Peer-to-Peer transactions, such as AirBnB and Uber, new...

The drivers of differences between growth in GDP and household adjusted disposable income in OECD countries
Jennifer Ribarsky, Changku Kang, Esther Bolton
Growth in household income has evolved differently from gross domestic product (GDP) in most OECD countries over the last eighteen years. Using the wealth of information available in the System of National Accounts, this paper provides an assessment of what may be driving this gap. A clear...

Multi-dimensional Living Standards
Romina Boarini, Fabrice Murtin, Paul Schreyer, Marc Fleurbaey
We compute a distribution-adjusted welfare measure that aggregates outcomes in three dimensions of well-being, namely income, employment and longevity. Aggregation weights reflect preferences of people on these dimensions. The welfare measure is calculated for 26 OECD countries and selected...

Measuring Educational Inequalities in Mortality Statistics
Johan P. Mackenbach, Gwenn Menvielle, Domantas Jasilionis, Rianne de Gelder
All OECD countries are faced with substantial inequalities in health status between socioeconomic groups within their populations. One aspect of these inequalities for which data are routinely available in many countries is inequalities in mortality by level of education: people with a lower...

Towards a Distribution-Sensitive Better Life Index
Koen Decancq
The Better Life Index was introduced by the OECD as a tool to chart the multi-dimensional well-being of OECD member countries, Brazil and the Russian Federation. However, the Better Life Index relies only on aggregate country-level indicators, and hence is insensitive to how multi-dimensional...
