Key points

  • Key points:
  • Big Data information improves the nowcasting performance and provides an important “time advantage” to analysts and policy makers. It is not just the “high frequency” but the“High Definition” component too, which leads Big Data to have “High Potential”.
  • Bank transaction data requires efforts to make Big Data indicators robust and stable.
  • We focus on“National Accounts”, we monitor consumption and investment with our Big Data indices in real time.
  • The time advantage on the developed indicators evolution can be important, especially in emerging countries.
  • Our Big Data investment indicators have “High Definition” too. This could be key to track investment by economic sectors and regions.
