Mission College Sources for Economic Indicators

Please pick 3 economic indicators (see the list below – the business cycles indicators are also listed in your e-book) and find the data for these economic indicators for the last 13-14 years to include the 2007-09 recession. (You can find historical data for most of these economic indicators on www.fred.stlouis.org but the complete list of sources are below.)

How do these economic indicators explain the changes in real GDP for these years?

Your starting point is the historical chart for Real GDP for the last 14 years like the following:
https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GDPC1 (choose the 14 year period)
Then find the 14-year charts for each of the 3 indicators you pick and explain the the fluctuations in these indicators with respect to Real GDP. Include the historical chart for each indicator in your answers. (The Federal Reserve Bank evaluates the changes in all these indicators to evaluate the overall economy but in this assignment you will be taking only 3 of them. Try to pick different indicators so we can have a complete picture of the economy. )
Below you will find the original source for each indicator but Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis Economic Data (FRED) https://fred.stlouisfed.org/ is a shortcut and it’s easier to find historical data on this website (Search FRED) for most of the indicators. I recommend that you go to the original sources to experience finding data.
