   Lagging indicators are economic indicators that follow a change in the economic cycle, reflecting what has already happened in the overall economy. They include such things as labour costs and interest rates. They contrast with leading indicators, which measure economic factors that alter ahead of changes in the overall economic cycle, and coincident indicators, which change at the same time as the overall economic cycle.
