coincident indicators
economic indicators that give an indication of the current status of the economy. Bloomberg Financial Dictionary

* * *

   Coincident economic indicators measure economic factors that change at the same time as the overall economic cycle. They include such things as retail trade volume and industrial production. Leading indicators, on the other hand, measure factors that change ahead of changes in the overall economic cycle and are used to predict changes in overall output and activity in an economy. Leading indicators include such things as share prices, new orders for investment goods, housing construction orders and the index of consumer confidence. Lagging indicators are economic indicators that follow a change in the economic circle. They include such things as labour costs and interest rates.
