Bus/Financial - Economics
Additional field(s): Economics, Finance (general), Mathematics & Statistics
English term or phrase: lagging indicators
Definition from The Economist:
Old news. Some economic statistics move weeks or months after changes in the business cycle or inflation. They may not be a reliable guide to the current state of an economy or its future path.

Example sentence(s):
  • Another downside is that lagging indicators encourage a focus on outputs (a number-based measure of what has happened), rather than outcomes (what we wanted to achieve). Bernard Marr & Co.
  • Not only do they predict how your lagging indicators will perform, you should be able to influence them. Professional Growth Systems
  • The reactionary nature of lagging indicators makes them a poor gauge of prevention. For example, when managers see a low injury rate, they may become complacent and put safety on the bottom of their to-do list, when in fact, there are numerous risk factors present in the workplace that will contribute to future injuries Ergo Plus

Gecikmeli göstergeler

Definition from Halk Yatırım Menkul Değerler:
Gecikmeli Göstergeler; mevcut durumda ekonomik gidişatın yönüne ilişkin sinyal vermekten ziyade, ekonomik aktivitede gerçekleşmelerin nedenlerini açıklar. Gecikmeli göstergeler ekonomideki durumun anlaşılmasını ve ileride yapılacak reformların hangi alanlarda atılması gerektiği konusunda sinyaller verir.
