NEW YORK, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) for Spain increased 0.7 percent in January to 105.2 (2004 = 100), following a 0.8 percent increase in December, and a 0.6 percent increase in November.
At the same time, The Conference Board Coincident Economic Index® (CEI) for Spain, a measure of current economic activity, declined 0.4 percent in January to 94.0 (2004 = 100), following a 0.6 percent decline in December, and a 0.7 percent decline in November.
The LEI for Spain increased for the fifth consecutive month, and as a result, its six-month growth rate continues to pick up. The CEI for Spain, however, has been on a downward trend for more than a year, and its six-month growth rate has grown more negative as a result. Although economic growth is likely to remain in negative territory, the recent relatively widespread improvement in the LEI suggests that the contraction may become shallower in the coming months.
