Coincident Indicator

An economic indicator that provides information on the current state of the economy. That is, a coincident indicator does not show which way the economy is heading, but where it is at present. For example, coincident indicators move up when GDP is growing and down when GDP is shrinking. A common example is personal income. It is also called a concurrent indicator. See also: Leading indicator, Lagging indicator.
